Gain Peace of Mind Through a Structured Settlement

Canadian law permits claimants to place portions of their personal injury settlements into a structured annuity. This guaranteed tax-free payment can be received each month for a set period.

Equitable Remedies Relating to Long-Term Disability Policies

If your claim for long-term disability (LTD) benefits has been denied by an insurance company, there are several factors to be considered, including whether the doctrine of Relief from Forfeiture might apply. Relief from Forfeiture is an equitable remedy available through the Court’s inherent jurisdiction. It is a discretionary remedy that the Court can utilize to protect a person’s rights, even in cases where there is a lack of strict compliance with the terms of the insurance policy.

The LAT Finds Another Claimant CAT: Perhaps it is the Sign of a New Trend

Punitive and Aggravated Damages in Long-Term Disability Claims

It is not uncommon for insurance providers to deny claims for long-term disability benefits or prematurely and unfairly terminate a recipient’s payments.

Traffic Signals: Be Careful Even on a Green Light

Just because a traffic light is green does not mean drivers can abandon all caution. Drivers always have a duty to take reasonable care at an intersection, even if they are approaching a green light.
