One of the most common things we hear when we’re talking about people being denied long term disability (LTD) benefits is that they just don’t think there is anything they can do. Those with disabilities often either return to work while they are unwell or have to use all their savings while trying to get better. We know from years of experience that there’s a way to get our clients the benefits they deserve.
We want to spread the word that for those facing down a denial of claims from their insurance company, we can help. But don’t just take that from us. Today we share some thoughts from our client Prisha, who came to Share Lawyers after her LTD benefits were denied after not being able to work due to the debilitating symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Prisha's Story Of Benefits Denied
“I would like to say thank you to your firm for the experience I have had. From beginning to end, what has been a very stressful and trying time they have walked me through.”
Some clients when they first come to a law firm, they expect to be interrogated, but at Share Lawyers, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
“Mainly, I would like to point out the efforts of Mr. Christopher Corbett. Yesterday was our mediation. I was expecting the worst, as I've heard stories from others about other lawyers tearing them apart, insulting and humiliating them. I was scared, nervous and very emotional when I arrived. Chris talked and walked me through the process and actually listened to me. He heard what I had to say.”
Many people think that they’ll get lost in the legal jargon and that the lawyer won’t really care about their journey. At Share Lawyers, we care about our clients.
“When the lawyers began their statements and arguments, Chris was not only thorough with details of my doctor reports and evidence but he was so clear on how I felt through this whole ordeal, that I was brought to tears. I never felt so understood. I finally felt someone heard me.”
We always work to make sure that your side of the story is heard and understood.
“Then it was the moment I had tried to prepare for. The worst part. The time for the lawyer of the insurance company to speak. Then when he spoke, it hit me, he actually heard Chris. He listened. He brought up a few things in their argument against me but it was not a nightmare. It was very short and I was not humiliated. I was not insulted and my character was not bashed. Whatever arguments he did have, Chris was quick to have factual responses. It was a completely different experience than I expected. It felt like a win, because finally I was heard. Finally what I have been going through and still am was heard. I was acknowledged and my disability was acknowledged.”
We were able to reach a settlement for Prisha so that she was able to take the time off work to recover.
“I was left without words. From the moment I met Chris till the moment I left, he worked so hard. He believed in me and my disability. Words cannot express my gratitude towards him. To say thank you could never be enough."
We are so thrilled and proud we were able to help Prisha get the benefits she needed and are honoured she chose us to represent her.

A note from our long term disability lawyers
Taking a medical leave from work is not an easy decision to make. Concerns about providing for yourself and your family and keeping your job may cause you to want to push through your pain, but this won’t make your problems go away. Stopping work is often the smartest decision for your long term health and well-being, and your disability benefits are there to provide you with financial support until you can return to work.
If you have made the tough decision to stop working and apply for your short term disability or long term disability benefits, you may feel overwhelmed by the process and have questions that your employer and your insurance company are not able or willing to answer. Share is There to see you through and answer your questions.
Our Disability law firm knows what you have been going through
We understand that things have not been easy for you over the last little while. Your health has been suffering, you are unable to work, and now your insurance company, who was supposed to be there in your time of need, has decided they will not pay your disability benefits or respect your disability claim. These benefits exist to provide you with the financial support you need so that you can focus on your health and rebuilding your life. It is unfortunate that your insurance company has not lived up to its promise. If your disability claim has been denied, we will fight to get you the benefits you are entitled to. Our disability lawyers have helped thousands of Canadians get their long term disability benefits over the past 35 years, and we can help you too.
