Wolfville Disability Lawyer


Your medical condition may make it impossible for you to continue performing the duties of your job. If you have been seriously injured or have been diagnosed with a physical or mental illness that prevents you from returning to the workplace for a prolonged period of time, provided you have an appropriate level of insurance coverage, you may be able to collect disability benefits.

Some Wolfville residents may have access to disability benefits through their employer’s group insurance plan; others may have disability coverage through an insurance policy they pay for privately. Regardless of how a person accesses insurance coverage, however, all insurance policies differ from one another, and each policy has different eligibility requirements for disability benefits.

Whether or not an individual’s physical illness or injury will entitle them to disability benefits depends on the terms of their insurance policy as well as the physical demands of their occupation. Some medical conditions that may entitle an insurance policyholder to access disability benefits often include:

  • Heart disease
  • Back problems
  • Chronic pain or complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
  • Lupus or Lyme disease
  • Psoriatic arthritis or fibromyalgia
  • Paralysis
  • Depression
  • Bipolar mood disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • And possibly more

Disability benefits do not replace a recipient’s entire salary. Instead, these income replacement payments provide eligible insurance policyholders with between 60-70% of their regular earnings. For people struggling to make ends meet after receiving a diagnosis for a disabling medical condition, disability benefits can provide much-needed financial relief to help them continue supporting themselves and their families.

In order to apply for disability benefits, you may be required to submit supplementary material illustrating the severity of your medical condition and the effect it has on your ability to carry out the duties of your job. Types of evidence a claimant may be required to submit include:

  • Medical records
  • Results of medical examinations
  • Statements from attending physicians
  • A detailed description of job duties
  • A statement from plan sponsor (i.e. employer)
  • Other documentation

Unfortunately, even applicants who provide their insurance provider with thorough medical evidence proving that their medical condition makes it impossible for them to continue working could have their claims for disability benefits denied. Insurance providers deny the claims of many eligible policyholders whose medical conditions should entitle them to receive disability benefits.
