How We Win Your Case: Discoveries

I decided that I wanted to write a series of blogs detailing how the team at Share Lawyers help you win your case. We always keep our clients informed about every step of the mediation process as it helps ease what is already a stressful time in their lives. For that reason, I felt it necessary to do the same for anyone who may be reading and going through a similar experience.

Discovery Helps Win Your Case


Once we have filed your case with the court, you will often be required to attend an Examination for Discovery. Discovery usually takes place in a Court Reporter’s office where you will be questioned about the various aspects of your case including:

- Your job

- Health condition(s)

- Treatments

- Your usual activities of daily living (your daily activities)

- And other relevant matters to your specific case

Discovery is often scheduled to be completed before any settlement discussions take place either at mediation or a settlement meeting. In some cases, discovery doesn’t have to take place before a serious attempt at settling your case occurs, but that will depend on the specific facts of your case and the issues that are in dispute.

We Prepare You

In order to try and ensure that Discovery enhances the value of your case, we prepare you for the types of questions that you can expect to hear so that you can be prepared to answer these in the best possible way so that the questions you give will persuade the insurance company to see you more sympathetically than they have up to that point.

There is no substitute for preparation and if you follow our suggestions and advice, that will give you the best chance of making the discovery process as positive as possible for your case.

Make no mistake - the insurance company wants to use Discovery to obtain admissions that they can use against you or to find inconsistencies in your answers that can assist them in defeating your claim.

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.

When Share Lawyers gets involved, you have an entire team of lawyers that are there to support you and to fight for what is yours.
