No Win, No Fee Lawyers

Pursue Your Claim Without Worrying About Legal Fees

TPD Compensation Lawyers handles claims on a No Win, No Fee basis. Such an arrangement is crucial for our firm to effectively represent individuals applying for Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) benefits.

A waiting period of approximately 3–6 months applies to claims for TPD insurance. Being unable to work can take an enormous toll on your finances, especially given the medical expenses that tend to accompany injuries and illnesses that lead to Total and Permanent Disability.

Our no win, no fee lawyers agree to handle claims without upfront payment. Additionally, clients are not charged any fees until the matter is favourably resolved.

What Does ‘No Win, No Fee’ Mean?

As the name suggests, our No Win, No Fee policy (also called a conditional costs agreement) guarantees that payment of legal costs is contingent on our ability to obtain a favourable outcome on your behalf. You only pay TPD Compensation Lawyers’ fees if we get you a TPD benefit payout.

Fees refer to the cost of various services related to the matter. These may include:

  • Legal research
  • Preparation and review of documents
  • Electronic document management
  • Copying costs
  • Attendances (i.e., settlement conferences, courtroom proceedings, etc.)

In researching TPD compensation claims, you may have come across a number of terms relevant to no win, no fee costs agreements. Below you will find additional information on these terms, as well as how they apply when you are a client of TPD Compensation Lawyers.

What Is an Uplift Fee?

No win, no fee lawyers take on substantial risk by agreeing to represent clients without upfront or regular payment. As such, if a successful result is achieved for the client, lawyers are allowed to charge an uplift fee as additional compensation for their services.

Uplift fees are generally calculated as a percentage of the total legal fees incurred. The uplift fee may not exceed 25% of the costs your lawyer paid in the process of resolving your claim.

Should you decide to hire TPD Compensation Lawyers to handle your claim, our fee agreement will clearly state, in plain language: (a) when an uplift fee is due, and (b) how it will be calculated. You can count on there being no surprises.

What Are Disbursements?

Disbursements are expenses paid by a lawyer or law firm in the course of a client’s legal matter. These may include the cost of court filings, expert witness fees, charges for obtaining various records, etc.

Many law firms require clients to pay for disbursements regardless of whether the claim succeeds. At TPD Compensation Lawyers, however, we only charge for disbursements if the result is favourable. In this respect, we are truly no win, no fee lawyers.

What Is a Contingency Fee?

You may have come across the term ‘contingency fee’ in your legal research. With this fee structure, clients pay a percentage of the amount obtained by their lawyer.

However, it is important to note that law practices in Australia are prohibited from entering into contingency fee agreements with individual clients. TPD Compensation Lawyers scrupulously upholds this provision in our handling of Total and Permanent Disability matters.

What Are the Advantages of Working with No Win, No Fee Lawyers?

The most obvious benefit of a conditional costs agreement is not having to pay any money upfront for legal services. Concerns about expense are one of the biggest reasons people hesitate to seek legal counsel. This is especially true for individuals who are already facing financial difficulties.

Individuals who qualify for Total and Permanent Disability often incur substantial costs for medical treatment, disability care, and more. They also lose income while they are unable to work and are unlikely to return to gainful employment in the near future (or at all). Our firm understands the pressures you are facing, which is why we are proud to represent you on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Why Choose TPD Compensation Lawyers?

Other advantages of hiring a no win, no fee lawyer include:

  • Peace of mind: Without an upfront payment or a regular fee schedule, you don’t have to be concerned about losing money while your TPD claim is in progress. You can focus on your health and spending time with family and friends while our lawyers seek to resolve the matter for you.
  • Fair compensation: TPD benefits are paid as a one-time lump sum. Our firm seeks to maximise the payout. This ensures that, should the insurance company agree to pay up or the court makes a favourable judgement, you still receive substantial compensation once fees and the uplift are calculated.
  • Access to justice: Without no win, no fee lawyers, fair treatment under the law would be out of reach for anyone who couldn’t afford legal counsel. Conditional costs agreements give people the ability to assert their rights without financial anxiety.
  • Levelling the playing field: Superannuation insurers have a significant advantage over TPD applicants. Hiring a no win, no fee lawyer allows you to overcome unreasonable delays and dispute unfair denials without breaking the bank.
  • Timely resolution of your claim: No win, no fee lawyers and their clients alike have an interest in resolving matters quickly. The sooner a successful result is achieved, the sooner the client gets the TPD benefit they deserve (and, for the lawyer, the sooner fees can be paid).

While we cannot say that there is ‘no risk’ in entrusting your claim to us, TPD Compensation Lawyers has decades of specialised experience navigating super insurance and other complex matters. Our confidence in our abilities is such that we guarantee our services for 90 days.
