What Is Gaslighting?
In Ontario, short-term disability typically provides individuals with benefits for up to six months immediately following a serious illness or injury. Conversely, long-term disability benefits are intended to replace 60 to 70 per cent of a person’s normal income if their injury or illness prevents them from working past the end of their short-term disability benefit period.
Why Ltd Claims Get Denied and How We Can Help
Did you know up to 60 per cent of long-term disability claims are turned down by insurance providers every year? It typically happens on claims for invisible injuries or illnesses, like depression, anxiety, chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and fibromyalgia. That’s because these conditions aren’t physically apparent or objectively measurable by any diagnostic tests currently available.
Moreover, the definition of a disability varies wildly between insurance companies. It can even vary between different insurance plans from the same company.
Fortunately, the lawyers at Kelly Greenway Bruce are committed to helping you recover the compensation you’re duly owed. Our team will review the facts of your case and compile the evidence in your favour, including medical records and expert assessments, to ensure your claim gets granted.
