Any Number of Disabilities Can Take You Out of the Game
A debilitating accident or condition will quickly make you realize how you took the most basic abilities for granted. Of the many ways that disability impacts your life, the impossibility of maintaining the same level of productive work that you once did can be the most frustrating.
We assist Guelph clients in obtaining the financial help they need, and we have seen a bevy of conditions accounted for with disability benefits. These include but are not limited to:
- Mental disorders
- Chronic pain
- Autoimmune disorders
- Respiratory disorders
- Cardiovascular problems, such as heart disease or stroke
- Nervous system disorders
- Skin disorders
- Digestive tract disorders
Any of these disabilities can be debilitating, as all cases vary in their extent and form. If you experience any of these conditions or another ailment that is not listed, we want to hear from you. You may be eligible to receive financial compensation.

Insurance Often Does Not Cut It
Most Canadian employers have some form of employment insurance, and if your employer does not, the Canadian government offers various forms of assistance. These benefits may be enough for you to subsist on, and we will help you explore options like sickness benefits and other short-term disability remedies.
But often basic insurance benefits do not replace the entirety of your lost wages, and are not enough for you to get by on. Yet, an estimated one in five Canadians ages 15 and over—6.2 million people—had one or more disabilities that limited their daily activities as of 2017.
But Canada improved protections for those who find themselves unable to collect a living wage through the Employment Insurance Act of 1996. We may be able to secure benefits for you through this Act. If not, Canada also offers routes to disability benefits for those who do not have basic employment insurance.
With all of this in mind, insurance-oriented routes may not be the best option for you. A disability lawyer serving Guelph can guide you through this thought process and get the ball rolling if further legal action is required to secure the benefits you need.

We Can Help Your Child
About one-third of youths with severe disabilities are neither in school nor employed. This is often not by choice — they simply cannot carry out the daily tasks and behaviors required to maintain a regular school schedule or job.
These children and their caretakers face a unique set of hurdles, including but not limited to:
- Little or no educational accommodation
- General lack of services and funding
- Bullying and exclusion even if they are able to attend school
Parents of disabled children are often at a loss, as they cannot afford to simply take off work to watch their child, at least not without additional financial assistance. These cases are often compelling, as disabled children are truly defenseless and in need of full-time care.
If you are the parent of a child with one or more disability, a disability lawyer serving Guelph will walk you through the avenues to obtaining disability benefits.
