3 Ways Our Ontario Long-Term Disability Lawyers May Be Able to Help You
If you have become disabled and are researching your options for filing a claim in Ontario, we encourage you to consider obtaining legal counsel before going any further with the process.
Provided you have the right level of insurance coverage, long-term disability benefits could provide you with a financial lifeline if a serious medical condition like an illness or injury makes it impossible for you to perform the duties of your job. However, even policyholders who should qualify to receive benefits do not always have an easy time securing the payments they are owed. If you are submitting a claim for long-term disability benefits, Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to assist you.
There are many ways we may be able to benefit your case, discussed below.
APPEALING UNFAIR DENIALS
Although insurance policies should behave with their policyholders’ best interests in mind, oftentimes their treatment of chronically ill or severely injured benefits claimants is less than fair. Insurance providers regularly deny the claims of policyholders whose medical conditions should entitle them to receive payments. Even policyholders whose claims for benefits are approved may have their payments terminated prematurely for reasons that can seem wholly arbitrary. Furthermore, insurers might offer eligible claimants with a lower benefits amount than the one to which they should be entitled. If you have been treated unfairly by your insurance provider, our Ontario long-term disability lawyers may be able to appeal their decision in an attempt to help you recover the treatment and payment you deserve.
In many instances, insurers will act unfairly by:
- wrongly denying claims;
- prematurely ceasing benefits; or
- providing fewer benefits to the claimant than they should.
If you are working with our team at Preszler Injury Lawyers, we will be prepared for any speed bumps, call out the insurer if they act unscrupulously and hold them responsible for decisions. We will not allow them to pull the wool over your eyes.
REPARING APPLICATIONS FOR LONG-TERM DISABILITY BENEFITS
Completing forms and filing them with the correct information, providing adequate proof of disability, and gathering information about income and expenses can be a long, arduous and complicated process. By working with our Ontario long-term disability lawyers, you may be able to expedite the process of applying for benefits and avoid future complications down the road.
