Disability Lawyer Campbell River
There is a strong chance that at some point during your working years, you will become disabled, if but for a temporary amount of time. Injuries and illnesses can both be disabling, and if you do suffer a disability, the last thing that you want to have to worry about is being able to afford your costs of living and providing for yourself and your family. This is where disability insurance comes in: disability insurance is designed to provide you with a source of income when a disability prevents you from working. Unfortunately, while you may have disability insurance privately or through your employer, your insurer may be reluctant to pay you the benefits you deserve. When this happens, you need a skilled Campbell River disability lawyer on your side to help you fight back.
Top Reasons Why Disability Claims in Campbell River are Denied
There are a number of reasons why your disability claim in Campbell River may be denied; claims are denied or deceptively estimated all of the time, as the primary goal of an insurance company is to save the insurance company money. In order to reduce your settlement amount, and insurance company may claim that:
- Your claim does not include enough medical evidence to support your disability;
- You did not attach enough valid medical evidence for your disability;
- You do not have any or enough objective indications of injury;
- You did not properly understand your policy, and therefore are not entitled to the benefit that you thought; or
- You did not follow your doctor’s orders, and therefore are partially to blame for your disabling condition.
Other ways that insurance companies may take advantage of their position and pay claimants less than they deserve is to make declarative statements about a claimant’s policy, knowing that the claimant does not understand the technical language of their policy. Other times, an insurance company may unreasonably delay in paying a claim, resulting in the claimant being without income or resources for months.
How Our Campbell River Disability Lawyers can Help You
Being denied disability benefits to which you are entitled, or having your claim take months to process, can be incredibly frustrating. More than this, though, a denied or delayed claim can also be worrisome: How will you be able to support yourself if you are unable to work? If you have been offered less than you think you deserve, your claim has been denied, or your claim is taking an unreasonable amount of time to process, our lawyers can help.
When you call our experienced disability lawyers in Campbell River, we will get to work on your case immediately. We can represent you by:
- Reviewing your insurance policy and helping you to understand what you are entitled to in benefits;
- Rebutting the insurance company’s claim that you are not actually disabled and unable to work;
- Protecting you from unfair medical examinations conducted by one of the insurance company’s “independent” doctors; and
- Representing you in all settlement talks with an insurance company.
We can also put pressure on an insurance company to act fast to process your claim; unreasonable delays in claim processing are unacceptable.
In addition to the above, we can also help you to explore other options for compensation for your disability. For example, you may be able to file for disability assistance through the federal government or the government of British Columbia. In some cases, you may even be able to file a personal injury claim against another party if your injuries were caused as the result of another party’s negligence.
