How to Deal With a Lawsuit When You're Sick

Dealing with a lawsuit

Dealing with a lawsuit involves a number of important steps. No matter what, your first step should always be to have an experienced lawyer representing you who can provide you with the best representation and walk you through all of the complicated legal negotiations and proceedings that will help you win your case. It goes without saying that dealing with a lawsuit when you are sick or unwell can be even more complicated and stressful, especially if an insurance company has denied you the disability benefits you deserve.

The Share Lawyers team has years of experience and expertise on their side, and they know first-hand just how difficult this process can be. Take the pressure off and put us to work for you! Share Lawyers will always work hard to settle your case quickly, courteously and professionally so that you'll have peace of mind and you can get back to focusing on your health and well-being.

In the meantime, consider these simple suggestions to keep you feeling relaxed during this complicated process:


Meditation can be a great way to relax, especially if you are under a lot of stress. Research has shown that meditation can be helpful in lowering heart rate and blood pressure, and even improving cognitive performance. It's incredibly simple to do- just find a comfortable place, close your eyes, relax your muscles and focus on just one thing, a picture in your mind. The key is to stay focused and not let outside distractions enter your mind!

Listen to music

Listening to soothing music can be very relaxing--and slow tempos in particular can induce a calmer state of mind. Did you know it can also slow down breathing and heart rate, lower blood pressure, and relax tense muscles too? This can be particularly beneficial when you're getting ready for a tough day at work. Listening to music helps if you're in your car stuck in traffic. As well, it can help when you're lying in bed trying to free your mind of stressful thoughts.


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.
