Long Term Disability Claims (LTD)
If your disability benefits have been denied – Preszler Law Injury Lawyers can help. We recommend you ask the insurance company for their denial position in writing and get in touch with a disability lawyer at your earliest opportunity. In most cases, you may be eligible for a right of appeal and these grounds are generally defined in the insurance policy. While you may have the right to appeal, it is best to speak directly with a disability lawyer first because the appeal process often only prolongs the predicament.
In Nova Scotia, most LTD policies stipulate that you will be paid for up to 2 years if you are totally disabled from completing the essential tasks of your employment. After two years, the definition changes to being totally disabled from doing any occupation for which you are suited by way of education and experience. However, you are not obligated to go back to work even if your LTD provider is telling you that you are required to return to work.
