Claiming Long-Term Disability Benefits May Require the Help of an Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer

Many people carry long-term disability insurance coverage to protect themselves in the event that serious injuries prevent them from being able to return to work and earn an income on their own. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, slip and fall, or by a defective product, you may be entitled to claim benefits from your long-term disability insurer.

It is important to know that your long-term disability insurance policy can contain limitations you may not be aware of until you have already been injured.  Under certain circumstances, your claim may be denied for not being fully compliant with the terms of your policy, or the type of injury you suffer may not be covered in your policy.

When accident victims have questions about getting insurance benefit compensation for their claims, especially what’s fair and reasonable under the circumstances, a personal injury lawyer can help to clarify the terms of your policy. In some cases, you may require some assistance in recovering the maximum benefits under your policy.

A lawyer who specializes in long-term disability claims can tell you know how long you have to file a claim, walk you through the process, and make sure you receive the financial support you need to continue living a healthy, productive life.

If you carry long-term disability coverage and have questions about recovering benefits, or the limitations or exclusions in your policy, contact our lawyers to get the answers you’re looking for.

We routinely work with many insurance companies and can help you to get the assistance you’ve been promised under your insurance policy.
