Process of Long Term Disability Claims

Long Term Critical Illness Lawyer

Process of Long Term Disability Claims

Long term disability claims are typically initiated with a denial from an insurer.

For many reasons a insurance company may deny your disability benefit for income loss and thereby trigger a number of options;

  • accept a claim against the insurer
  • appeal a claim against the insurer
  • initiate a claim against the insurer

The most notable insurers are: Great West Life, Canada Life, Standard Life, RBC insurance, TD insurance, Empire Life, Scotia Bank, Aca Insurance.

Disability Claims in Court

Impact Law LLP assists clients with pursuing and presenting claims before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice for damages pertaining to income loss and the income replacement benefit associated with your insurance policy.

The date of denial of your claim for disability is very important, because that date typically marks the beginning of your limitation date or the date that you can commence your claim.

From this point, you have two years to commence your action for benefits.

If you do not file within the two years of the denial date (limitation date), you may face legal challenges in order to commence your action, including but not limited to a summary judgment motion, or a limitation period defence.

It is important to consult with a lawyer as soon as possible after receiving your denial of long term disability benefits.

Impact Law provides free consultations to all clients with Long Term Disability denials.

Determining the Extent of your Claim

Our consultation with the client is needed in order to determine the merit and extent of your claim.
