Canadians don’t regularly navigate disability law, but insurance companies do. This is their arena, and they use your lack of experience to their advantage.

Fortunately, disability law is our arena, too. With Share Lawyers on your side, our elite disability lawyers can help in many ways:

  • Manage the Complexity of the Case: Many cases involve multiple disabilities and require a comprehensive understanding of both disability law and your specific policy. With our expertise, we thoroughly grasp the intricacies of your case and policy, ensuring that we can provide effective representation tailored to your unique situation.

  • Gather and Assess Medical Evidence: When appealing a denial, you must obtain new evidence from a medical provider. We can take care of this process on your behalf, ensuring that you have access to all accurate medical records.

  • Help You Understand the Legal Process: Complicated legal procedures and regulations are common with any disability benefit application. We help you navigate the intricacies of disability law and avoid any pitfalls.

  • Help with Appeals & Denials: If your initial claim has been denied, we’ll help you present an even stronger and more convincing case for your appeal.

  • Handle Negotiations: Insurance companies always make lowball offers during negotiations to pay out the least amount possible. We understand their tactics and can negotiate larger payouts.

  • Reduce Time & Stress: The disability claims process can be time-consuming and emotionally draining. We do the heavy lifting so you don’t have to deal with any additional stress.
