What Should I Do If My Disability Benefits Have Been Denied?

Our law firm has been helping clients who have had their disability benefits terminated since 1975. During this time we have helped thousands of individuals across Richmond Hill, the Greater Toronto Area and all over Ontario with their denied disability claims. While denials for disability benefits are very common – it is not the end of the road. There is a chance that you may be able to appeal your disability denial or termination and this is where a disability lawyer may be able to help. We always recommend you hire a disability lawyer who is experienced in handling LTD appeals and not just any lawyer. If you or a loved one have had your disability benefits terminated – contact our Richmond Hill disability lawyers today for a free consultation to see if we may be able to assist with appealing the termination of your disability benefits.

Ask for your termination letter as soon as possible and contact a disability lawyer

If your disability benefits have been denied – you may have been sent or will be sent a denial letter in the mail. The letter is usually sent after you have submitted an application for your long-term disability benefits. If your disability benefits have been terminated – you need to contact your plan administrator and/or advisor and ask for a copy of your denial letter. Keep in mind that long-term disability (LTD) denials have strict timelines to adhere to so the sooner you do this and contact a disability lawyer, the better. Once you have obtained a copy of your letter and contacted a disability lawyer – your disability lawyer will help appeal your denial with the aim of getting your disability benefits re-instated. While getting your benefits re-instated is not a guarantee – hiring a disability lawyer may help make the process a lot less stressful for you.

Why hire a disability lawyer?

Hiring a disability lawyer to assist with your claim allows you to have someone who knows Ontario laws deal with the insurance company on your behalf. A disability lawyer will act as your legal representative and ensure your claims file is complete. Disability lawyers are experienced in knowing to ask the right questions from your doctors and where to obtain medical opinions for your case. They may also hire vocational experts that your appeal may require. A disability lawyer will also help negotiate your settlement with the insurance company and keep your best interests as their priority.
