If you suffered an injury or illness that is keeping you out of work and preventing you from getting paid, you might be eligible to file a disability claim and collect benefits. The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada explains that workers’ compensation pays you for injuries suffered on the job provided you are employed in a specified industry, but if you have private disability insurance—either through an employer-provided policy or one purchased on the private market—you can obtain benefits whether your condition is work-related or not.

We want to meet you and learn about your situation so we can determine how we may be able to help. We offer a free initial case evaluation and never collect a fee until we recover benefits for you.

How Preszler Injury Lawyers Can Help You Win Disability Benefits
When a disabling medical condition forces you to miss work, you can file a claim with your disability insurer to collect benefits. When you were sold the policy or received it as part of your employee benefits, you may have been led to believe that collecting benefits was as easy as filing a claim and then waiting for the money to arrive. Sadly, this is not always the case.
If your disability insurance company denied your claim, a disability lawyer from Preszler Injury Lawyers serving Milton may be able to help you by filing a lawsuit. If you have not yet filed your initial claim, we may be able to help you put together the evidence you need to get approved.

Why Disability Claims Get Denied
When a disability insurance company denies a claim, it is usually for a few reasons. Some possible explanations for disability claim denials include:
Your Condition Does Not Qualify
The insurance company may allege that the claimant’s injury or illness does not meet the definition of “disability” as provided in the policy. The discrepancy between how insurance companies and regular people define “disability” is a source of substantial confusion and frustration. To most of us, disability is anything that prevents us from doing our job. But insurance companies sometimes define it as something else entirely.
In order for a medical condition to qualify as a disability with many insurance companies, it must first prevent the person from doing their current job for the first two years. After two years, a disability must prevent that person from doing any job they are qualified to perform. And it does not matter if that job is not widely available in their local area or if it does not pay enough to meet the claimant’s monthly obligations; that is according to the insurance company.
If you received a denial for this reason, we may be able to help you fight it and collect the damages you deserve. To learn more, call Preszler Injury Lawyers today at 1-800-JUSTICE.
You Did Not Provide Enough Evidence
Another reason a claim is denied is for lack of evidence. The insurance company may claim that your supporting documentation did not go far enough to prove that you have a qualifying condition and that your condition prevents you from working. We may be able to help to gather the correct evidence needed to substantiate your disability claim.
You Missed the Filing Deadline
The third big reason for a claim denial is a missed deadline. Regardless of the reason for your denial, Preszler Injury Lawyers wants to see if we may be able to help you. To learn more, and to set up a free, no-obligation initial case evaluation today, call us at 1-800-JUSTICE.
When to File for Disability Benefits
Because missed deadlines are another possible reason for denials, it is important to file before your time runs out. Your policy should spell out how long you have to file after the onset of your injury. If your policy’s deadline is looming, Preszler Injury Lawyers might be able to take quick action on your behalf to make sure it does not expire.
