If you are disabled and no longer capable of earning a living in order to support yourself, the Canadian government may grant you CPP disability insurance benefits to help you survive. As well, many employers have Long Term and Short Term disability policies for their employees who are injured or who are suffering from a disabling illness. As you grow older, you may find that the physical demands of working exceed your capabilities even though you don’t have enough money to retire. In such a case, you may also be able to file for disability insurance benefits.
Determining the severity of your disability can be very difficult and insurance companies will not provide benefits unless you can prove that you are actually disabled. The obligation is on you, the disabled person, to provide sufficient medical evidence of disability. At Dietrich Law, our disability lawyers know exactly what CPP and insurance companies require to expedite determining your case. We can fully represent you throughout the entire process of making a claim for disability insurance. We are here to help you get on the right track and advise you as to what to do and what to expect.
At Dietrich Law, we understand your plight and the challenges of living with a disability. A disabling injury or illness often prevents a person from putting together the right evidence to convince an insurance company of an inability to work. Our disability lawyers know exactly what to do to maximize your benefits and minimize the time it takes for your benefits to commence. We are here to help remove this stress from your life.
We will help you with obtaining and reviewing all of the required documents and in establishing proof of your disability. All you need to do is provide us with the information that is relevant to your case. If additional information is required we will help you obtain any other documentation that you may need from your doctors and employer.
At Dietrich Law, we are committed to serving your needs and we strive to make the process of claiming insurance benefits as stress free as possible for you. You can be assured that we will be with you every step of the way.
