Long Term Disability

Have you been diagnosed with an illness or sustained an injury that prevents you from performing the duties of your job? If so, you might be eligible for long-term disability (LTD) benefits. Unfortunately, many LTD benefits claims are denied by insurance providers, which can put disabled claimants in confusing, stressful positions. To learn more about how our long-term disability lawyers may be able to help you stand up for your rights, read the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.

The duration of a long-term disability case can vary depending on a number of factors, including the reasons provided for the claim’s denial, the policyholder’s standing with their insurance provider, the complexity of the claimant’s case, the willingness of the insurance company to negotiate, Court availability, and other considerations. Generally speaking, it can take between 1-3 years for a fair resolution to be reached.
Our long-term disability lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. That means we only get paid if the case is won, and our fees are based on a percentage of the compensation awarded. You will not be required to pay any upfront fees out-of-pocket in order to pursue legal action.
The statute of limitations for a long-term disability lawsuit in Ontario is generally two years from the date of the denial of benefits or the last payment of benefits. However, depending on the circumstances of the case, the lawsuit could be subject to additional time limitations. It is crucial to speak with a long-term disability lawyer as soon as possible, so as to not jeopardize your chances of recovering the compensation you deserve.
The answer to this question depends on the facts of your individual case. Our Ontario long-term disability lawyers should be able to evaluate the terms of your policy, review the evidence available to you, and consult with medical experts to assess the strength of your claim.
It is almost impossible to predict the specific amount of compensation you might be entitled to, however after reviewing the details of your case, our Ontario long-term disability lawyers may be able to provide you with an estimate that you could reasonably expect to be offered. The decision to accept settlement offers is yours and yours alone.
No, our long-term disability lawyers are solely committed to protecting the rights of policyholders who have been unfairly treated by insurance providers.
The answer to this question depends on the terms of your individual settlement. In most cases, the settlement will include a lump sum payment for past and future benefits. After agreeing to these terms and accepting this settlement offer, future benefits will no longer be paid. However, in some scenarios, insurance companies may only offer to settle for past benefits owing and might agree to continue paying benefits after the case is settled until the terms of the policy are reached.
It is not recommended that you speak to the adjuster on your file after your benefits have been terminated. Anything you say could be used against you. That is why it is best to consult with our long-term disability lawyers before communicating with your insurance company.
