Roundup - Our Top Posts About Diabetes

Diabetes is a debilitating condition that affects millions of Canadians. About 7.5 percent of the Canadian population lives with Type 2 diabetes. Prediabetes, a condition that often precedes the development of Diabetes, affected over 20% of the Canadian population in 2015. There are three types of Diabetes - Type 1, Type 2, and Gestational Diabetes. At Share Lawyers, we know how life disrupting living with Diabetes can be.

Over the years, we’ve represented clients diagnosed with Diabetes and helped them to obtain the long-term disability benefits they deserve for their condition. But it’s not easy to do - most insurance companies deny such claims.

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.
