1. How a Disability Lawyer Serving Bancroft Can Help You
If you have an insurance policy, either one you purchased on the private market as described as Disability Insurance by Financial Consumer Agency of Canada or disability insurance offered by your employer, you might think receiving money for a disability is as easy as filing a claim and waiting for your check to arrive. That is what many people believe when they become disabled, either on a short-term or long-term basis. Unfortunately, many people are wrong. Very soon they come to realize, dealing with an insurance company is almost never easy, even when you have what seems to be a clear-cut claim.
Because insurance companies are for-profit entities, they are not extremely eager to pay out large sums of money to policyholders at every opportunity. In fact, they are much more likely to do everything possible to minimize what they pay out by denying or reducing claims when they can, even if their reasons are tenuous.
At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we help disabled clients fight back against claim denials by gathering evidence and putting together convincing claims that show the insurance company beyond the shadow of a doubt that our client deserves benefits.
To start the process today by scheduling a free initial case evaluation, call a disability lawyer serving Bancroft at 1-800-JUSTICE.

2. Why Insurers Deny Disability Claims
Disability insurance companies deny many claims based on one of three reasons:
1. Your Condition Does Not Qualify
This reason is by far the most common given by disability insurance companies when they deny claims. The reason insurers are able to offer up this reason is how they define the word disability. Rather than considering a person disabled if a medical condition prevents them from doing their job, they only count an injury or illness as a disability if it prevents them from doing any job—even one they are not qualified to do or have never done before.
This is problematic in many ways. The job the insurance company thinks you should be able to do may not be available in your area, or it may not pay nearly enough for you to meet your living expenses. The job might not even match your skillset.
If you received a disability insurance claim denial and this was the reason given, we will file an appeal on your behalf and fight the insurance company’s decision. We will help you get a reversal of your denial and collect the compensation you deserve.
2. You Did Not Provide Enough Evidence
The second-most-common reason for disability claim denials is insufficient evidence. Even if your condition does meet the insurance company’s definition of a disability, the insurer might try to claim that you did not submit enough evidence to prove you actually have the condition. We will help you file an appeal and overwhelm them with evidence, leaving no doubt whatsoever.
3. You Missed the Filing Deadline
Finally, insurance companies will deny your claim for benefits if you miss the deadline to file a claim. If you were denied for this reason or any other, we can help you file an appeal and recover compensation. To schedule your free initial case evaluation, call 1-800-JUSTICE today.
3. What Benefits You Can Recover
