Disability Insurance Claims
What We Do
Our lawyers have significant experience litigating disability insurance claims, including short-term disability and long-term disability claims. We have acted against all major insurance companies in Canada, and our lawyers are regularly successful in winning internal appeals, negotiating excellent settlements for our clients, and when necessary, litigating these complex matters in court.
We also assist employees with the return to work process, including by assisting employees who are seeking temporary or permanent workplace accommodations. For more information about our expertise in this area, please click here.
Disability and Human Rights Legislation
As human rights lawyers, we assist employees who feel that they have been discriminated against because of their disability. Discrimination on the basis of disability occurs in many contexts, such as where an employer refuses to provide a reasonable accommodation to an injured employee; where a supervisor or co-worker makes inappropriate comments about an employee's disability; or when an employer dismisses an employee for reasons related to their disability.
