What is long-term disability insurance?
Long-term disability insurance or LTD insurance offers financial protection in the unfortunate event you are injured or have sustained an illness which prevents you from being able to return to work indefinitely. The financial compensation aims to offset any financial hardship you might suffer due to a medical condition(s) that prevents you from going back to work. Most policies in Canada provide disability benefits for a certain amount of time. Once that time has expired, you may be required to re-apply for disability benefits again.
How can an Alberta based disability lawyer help me?
If you have received a letter from your insurance company terminating your benefits – we recommend you contact a disability lawyer to review your case. A disability lawyer may be able to get your benefits re-instated if your injuries continue to prevent you from going back to work. There are many deadlines involved when filing a claim against your disability insurance provider and this is another reason why hiring a disability lawyer to help with your claim may be beneficial.
A disability lawyer can also help put together a case for why your disability benefits should be re-instated. For example, they can hire medical and vocational experts to offer third party opinions on your medical condition(s) which may be preventing you from returning to work. These professionals will review your ability to perform your job and responsibilities and put you through physical tests to see what your physical limitations are. A disability lawyer will also project manage all the correspondence with health care professionals and your insurance provider to ensure that your best interests are always placed as a priority.
