Long-term disability (LTD) insurance coverage is important protection for you and your family. Our experienced insurance litigation lawyers can help you with your problems.
When you apply for long term disability benefits, your carrier will review your application and the policy wording which applies. It is necessary to review the wording of your policy, as well as the process by which the long term disability policy resolves disputes arising from differences in medical opinions concerning your condition and status. Different insurance policies also offer long term disability coverage for different periods of time, dispite meeting their test for disability. Whether you are totally or completely or permanently disabled or suffer a completely inability to work at any occupation or your own occupation, you should have an experienced insurance lawyer review for your application and the denial of your claim. For a recent review of long term disability caselaw, visit our blog.
Are you unable to work due to pain, injury, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, fatigue or other chronic disorders or problems? No income and unable to support you and your family? Is your short-term disability (STD) insurance policy coverage over or set to end soon? Will you apply to your long-term disability (LTD) insurance policy coverage for income replacement benefits? Do you expect to apply to the Canada Pension Plan Disability (CPP Disability) system for ongoing insurance benefits? Have you considered applying to the Ontario Disability Support Plan (ODSP) for benefits? Call us and our top, experienced downtown Toronto lawyers can help you to review your problems.
Being seriously injured while playing sports – particularly an injury to your child – can have a devastating effect on your family. Serious head injuries or brain damage, including loss of consciousness (coma and GCS - glascow coma scale low scores), blindness and vision problems with one or both eyes, spinal cord injuries and disc problems in the spine, broken bones and fractures, surgery and hospital admissions are all life changing problems that require experienced legal help and top lawyers to prosecute your claim.
Serious, catastrophic injuries are devastating to the injured person and their family and leave them unable to work and sometimes without an income to support their family. Brain damage and head injuries are problems that require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation and experienced lawyers to deal with the legal issues.
