Serious Heart Condition


Recently Michelle Meigan, Associate at Taylor & Scott and an expert in TPD claims, acted for a labourer who was forced to cease work at the age of 60 due to a serious heart condition.  Her client’s medical advisers had told him not to return to any form of manual labouring work.  Unfortunately due to his education and training, Michelle’s client was not trained for anything other than heavy manual work.

The client consulted Michelle seeking her help in making a TPD claim on the insurance policy attached to his superannuation.  Michelle consulted the client and advised him in a Free Case Assessment.  She then proceeded to act for him on a no-win/no-pay basis.  Michelle advised her client that in her opinion, he had a TPD insurance claim and assisted him in lodging the claim with the superannuation fund.

The claim was initially rejected by the TPD insurer on the basis that Michelle’s client was not totally and permanently disabled within the meaning of the insurance policy.  Michelle then went about obtaining further medical opinion from her client’s treating specialists and then made further submissions to the TPD insurer, in support of the TPD claim.  After considering the further evidence that Michelle had carefully compiled and submitted to the insurance company, they relented and reversed their decision.  This resulted in a payment in excess of $200,000 to her client.

If you have a medical condition which prevents you from doing your job, you may have a total and permanent disablement claim under your superannuation.  You are welcome to contact the experts in TPD insurance claims, here at Taylor & Scott on 1800 600 664 or complete the Contact Form on this page.  Our expert lawyers in superannuation TPD claims and income replacement claims will provide you with a Free Case Assessment and if we act for you, it will be done on a no-win/no-pay basis, meaning if you don’t win we don’t get paid.  This is our Guarantee to you.
