MK Disability Lawyers in the News: Don’t give up when your disability claim has been denied

MK Disability Lawyers partner Leanne Goldstein was honoured to be featured in an article recently by Legal Matters about the importance of not giving up after a disability claim has been denied. Please see an excerpt reprinted below, and visit the Legal Matters website to read the full article.

When you file a long-term disability (LTD) claim you expect that you will be paid the benefits you are owed. After all, you contributed to a plan to protect you in the event that an injury or a disability leaves you unable to perform your duties at work. 

You are disabled and still recovering. Your doctor agrees you are not capable of returning to the job. Yet, your insurer has terminated your LTD benefits. 

Insurance companies would not be expected to stay in business by running a deficit so they can be tight-fisted when paying out claims. But the insurer’s bottom line means nothing to you when you are struggling to pay your bills. You are frustrated and perhaps angry because it seems your concerns are falling on deaf ears. You are not alone. Our clients have told us they have felt bullied, harassed and disbelieved by insurance representatives. It is not uncommon for people to feel the insurer was “out to get them,” looking for any reason to terminate their benefits.

When you are off work due to injury, illness or disability, your focus is on getting better so you can return to the life you once enjoyed. Of course, your financial obligations do not suddenly come to an end. This added stress can be detrimental to your recovery and a claims denial is the last thing you need.
