Finding the right legal firm to assist with your disability claims can feel like a challenge. Knowing who to turn to for effective solutions seems difficult, especially if it is your first time dealing with the legal system. Today we talk to Chris about his experience with Share Lawyers.
Chris worked as a web developer, often working long hours at a time without a break. However, many hours spent at the computer contributed to a back injury that he had sustained skiing. Chris was in so much pain that he could not sit for more than 15 minutes at a time without being in excruciating pain.
Chris Was Terminiated Before He Could Apply For LTD Benefits
He took six weeks off from work to recover, after receiving notice that he was accepted for short-term disability benefits. After these six weeks, however, Chris was terminated from his job before he had the opportunity to apply for long-term benefits. He and his wife were unsure of what to do - Chris was out of a job and still needed more time to recover before pursuing new employment.
Chris was frustrated at the prospect of being without a job, and was uncertain about his family’s financial future. His wife found information about Share Lawyers online, and they both came in to discuss their case.
“It was a very positive and professional experience,” Chris recalled. “We both felt comfortable and at ease. The staff were very helpful whenever we had a question or concern. It went just as we were advised – it was a good experience.”
Share Lawyers Established The Insurance Company Must Provide Benefits
Share Lawyers were able to prove that Chris incurred his injury while he was actively working at his job. Even though his position no longer existed, they were able to establish that the insurance company must provide long-term benefits to Chris and his wife.
“Right from day one we felt we had made the right decision by calling the firm. We were impressed by Steven Muller and the others, and the way he handled everything.”
Chris has made a full recovery and was able to find a new position as a web developer. Share Lawyers is excited to see Chris starting a new job in good health and full happiness!

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.
