Ontario Disability Claims Lawyers
Whether you are disabled as the result of an accident or because of a medical condition, accessing short- or long-term disability insurance coverage or government assistance can be critical to maintaining your quality of life. Many employees have access to some form of disability benefit through their employer’s group plan, or through some other personal insurance plan they have purchased.
However, even where you, or your loved one, has a clearly documented condition, it can be extremely difficult to secure disability benefits from your insurance company. Your claim could be denied for any number of reasons, including:
- You are not disabled, or not sufficiently disabled to be unable to work
- You misrepresented your pre-existing medical conditions or health status when you applied
- Medical forms or other paperwork is missing or incomplete
Insurance companies will often try to cut off coverage for these types of claims, and it is not unusual or unexpected to receive a denial letter. This can be very discouraging when you are financially vulnerable and dealing with a chronic condition or injury, and are depending on your insurance coverage.
