Regardless of how your hand injury came about, if it has affected your ability to work, you may be entitled to make a claim through your TPD insurance policy.
Suffering an injury to the hand can be a life-changing experience. The simplest everyday tasks suddenly become difficult. In some cases, the physical damage to your hand may be permanent or have serious complications.
It’s very likely for many Australians to be left dependent on others to help them function from day to day, and this could also affect those that are helping you. Compensation could help cover various things from a loss of earnings to reimbursing those that have helped care for you, even if they did it freely.
