  • An injury that develops over a period of time (e.g. a repetitive-strain injury, industrial deafness)

The amount of compensation you may be entitled to receive will depend on:


  • The extent of your injuries and/or impairments

  • Your employment history
  • The amount of lost wages, both current and in the future

Being injured at work is traumatic for you and your family. You may need to take an extended period off work, and in some cases, you may not be able to return to your job. During this difficult time, you should be focusing on your rehabilitation. The stress of worrying about money and being able to support your family shouldn’t impact on your ability to recover.
If you’ve lost a loved one to a workplace accident, you need time to grieve and heal. Ensuring that you and any other dependents receive any entitlements can be complex to manage.
Commence your claim with a workplace injury lawyer as soon as possible, and let Littles help. 

Our 5 Step Process for TPD Claims

Through our simple 5 step process, we can help you to access the appropriate compensation, whether that’s through your state or territory workers' compensation authority, workplace insurance, your superannuation or through making a claim at common law.  While no amount of money can take away your injury and the pain and suffering it has caused, financial compensation can allow you to focus on getting better.

The first step you need to take is to get in touch with one of our friendly team members. Our experts will assess your case and advise you whether you should proceed – within 24 hours. 

If we establish that you should proceed with your claim, we will assign you to one of our specialist lawyers for a FREE no obligation chat. They will go through the details of your claim and discuss how it will proceed.  Every case is different and we tailor our services to the particular needs of each client. We will give you an estimate of the length of your claim at this meeting. This part of the process is obligation free – you can walk away at any time. 

Once you’re satisfied with how your case will proceed, we’ll get you to sign an agreement authorising us to act as your legal representative and outline our fee structure. We operate most claims on a No Win No Fee basis, which means that you only pay us when you’re successful – that means money for you. We will then go about gathering the necessary evidence to build a strong case for your claim, including medical evidence, witness statements and any supporting documentation.

We’ll commence a claim against the person or company responsible for your injury. In most instances, it’s the insurance company who will be paying your compensation, not the person or company themselves.

We’ll present a strong case for you and be there every step of the way to advocate and fight to get you get the result you deserve. Most claims are settled through negotiation and do not proceed to court, saving you time and money.

If your claim does proceed to court, we’ll continue to fight to ensure that your claim is finalised smoothly. 

If you’re successful in making a claim for compensation, you’ll be entitled to claim for a sum based on:
  • your injuries
  • your age
  • your loss of current and future income
  • medical bills
  • out of pocket expenses
  • future expenses (such as medical treatments), and 
  • any care you may need.
