Darren is a 44 year old Accountant/Financial Controller with a young family. In 2013 he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and the stress of his high pressure work was exacerbating his symptoms.
In 2014, Darren approached Slater and Gordon as he had stopped work and, as the sole breadwinner, was struggling financially. Although he was aware of TPD insurance, his condition had deteriorated to the point that he didn’t feel he had the capacity to manage the process himself. When reviewing his situation, his lawyer discovered that Darren had a second superannuation fund with Income Protection insurance cover.
Slater and Gordon lodged both his TPD and income protection claims on his behalf and achieved a quick turnaround due to our expertise and persistence, allowing Darren to focus on his family and managing his condition.
