London, Ontario, Lawyer Handling Disability Insurance Claims
If you have suffered a disabling injury or contracted a disease that permanently impairs your ability to work, you may be entitled to disability insurance through either a private plan of disability insurance or through your employer. Often, after an injury or illness, people utilize short-term and long-term disability benefits with the goal of eventually returning to work. When these benefits end and your medical condition does not, you should speak with a lawyer who has experience handling disability insurance claims.
At the law office of Michael Robertson, we first attempt to resolve insurance disability claims without litigation. However, when mediation and negotiations are not successful, we are thoroughly prepared to litigate.
Determining Total Disability
Determining total disability is a factual issue that depends on the occupation of the disabled person and the insurance policy’s definition of disability. This is why it is important to seek the advice of experienced legal representation when pursuing total disability benefits. Some of the more common injuries and medical conditions that may lead to disability insurance claims include:
- Mental health conditions
- Neck and back strains
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries
- Repetitive injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
- Chronic pain conditions, including fibromyalgia
