No job? No income? Being off work can impact your life in a significant way.
It is important to know whether you are entitled to disability benefits. These can be individual or private plans paid for as part of your employment package. Most employers offering benefits offer short and/or long term disability benefits as part of this employment package.
Disability claims are often denied for “lack of medical evidence”.
Negotiating a disability claim requires understanding the insurance contract and specific terms including “any occupation” or “own occupation”.
If your claim has been denied it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. We will help you gather the necessary evidence to support and appeal your claim.
You have limited time to take legal action. Time limits are not the same for everyone.
