Oakville Long-Term Disability Lawyer

There are many sources of stress and anxiety for people living with a disability, and many of them are related to financial matters. If you are unable to work because of your medical condition, receiving  long-term disability (LTD) benefits might make all the difference between continuing to support yourself and falling into financial despair. Provided your insurance policy has the appropriate level of coverage through your employer’s group plan or a privately held insurance policy, if you have  sustained a severe injury, developed a chronic illness, or have been diagnosed with a disabling condition related to your mental health, you might be entitled to LTD benefits.

Unfortunately, it can be hard to get LTD benefits. Different policies have different terms and conditions, as well as different eligibility requirements for claimants. Additionally, many policyholders’ claims are subjected to undue scrutiny and outright suspicion, especially if they are trying to recover LTD benefits for so-called “invisible” injuries or illnesses.

Claimants suffering from invisible injuries or illnesses may be in extreme pain and discomfort for extended periods of time, but since their symptoms are experienced subjectively and their severity cannot be observed through medical testing, they may be denied crucial support from their insurance provider. This can be extremely frustrating and disheartening for people suffering from legitimate medical complaints.  

Some examples of invisible injuries or illnesses that are often unfairly dismissed by insurers include:

Since invisible injuries or illnesses do not present objectively observable symptoms, insurers might deny an eligible claimant’s application for LTD benefits due to a lack of evidence. Moreover, even if an eligible policyholder receives LTD benefits payments for their disabling medical condition, after an arbitrarily determined period of time, their insurance provider might cut off their payments. 

After two years of providing eligible recipients with LTD benefits, many insurance providers update their definition of the term “disability.” By doing so, they impose even more stringent limitations on people who are still unable to return to the duties of their job because of their severe medical condition.
