What to Expect if You Hire a Disability Insurance lawyer?
- Your lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth will help you understand the basis for the insurance company’s denial of your claim. Whether it is short term disability, long term disability, Canada Pension Plan Disability or ODSP, our lawyers can explain, in plain English, why you have been denied.
- Once we have determined why you have been denied, we can help you decide the right course of action. Sometimes you need more medical support for your claim. Sometimes your employer has not sent in the required information. Sometimes you have missed a deadline or have applied too early. Regardless of the problem, we will provide you with the advice you need.
- Depending on the insurance company (or government body), we will give you advice on what to do next. Sometimes, we will write a letter of appeal on your behalf asking the insurer to reconsider its decision. Sometimes we will send a detailed medical brief. Sometimes, there will be no alternative but to start a law suit against the insurance company.
- If we need to start a law suit to get you the benefits you deserve, we will support you the entire way and prosecute your claim vigorously. Most disability claim files settle without a trial. However, if you need a trial to get your benefits, we will take your case to trial.
Along the way, if you have questions, we’ll have answers. Every client in our office is assigned three points of contact. There are at least 3 people who will know your file and be able to answer your questions.
