Rainy River Long-Term Disability Lawyer

Certain medical conditions, including physical injuries, illnesses, and mental health disorders make it impossible for regular people to continue going about their day-to-day business, or performing the duties of their jobs. That is why certain employers provide their staff with group insurance plans covering long-term disability (LTD) benefits. Should a person develop a disabling medical condition or sustain a severe, traumatic injury that prevents them from carrying out the tasks of their chosen occupation, they might be able to submit a claim for LTD benefits through their employer’s insurer. If their employer’s group insurance plan does not provide an appropriate level of coverage, LTD benefits might be covered under another private insurance policy.

In order to recover LTD benefits, policyholders with the appropriate level of insurance coverage must be able to submit evidence to their insurance provider proving that:

  • They have received a diagnosis for a disabling medical condition
  • They have received ongoing medical treatment for this condition
  • Their condition requires them to continue seeking medical treatment 
  • Their medical condition makes it impossible for them to perform the specific duties of their job
  • And possibly more

Examples of evidence that might be useful to include in an application for LTD benefits include:

  • Medical records 
  • Results of medical examinations 
  • Statements from attending physicians 
  • A detailed description of job duties 
  • A statement from plan sponsor (i.e. employer) 
  • Other documentation  

Additionally, you must first exhaust all other forms of insurance coverage available to you through your plan before applying for LTD benefits. These might include short-term disability and Employment Insurance (EI) sickness benefits.

Unfortunately, even after submitting thorough, compelling evidence proving that your injury or illness prevents you from working in your current occupational field, your insurance provider might decide to deny your claim for LTD benefits and withhold the income replacement payments to which you should be entitled. Insurance companies often deny LTD benefits claims for a number of reasons, many of which can be difficult to understand. 

After receiving a denied claim for LTD benefits, speaking with a Rainy River long-term disability lawyer could be beneficial.
