Howard Yegendorf of Our Ottawa Injury Law Firm

“Our results in catastrophic injury cases are measured in financial terms. But I have always felt that the true success in legal cases where lives have been shattered in an accident comes from a compassionate and thorough understanding of the deepl human costs involved.”

– Howard Yegendorf, Founding Partner.

Long-Term Disability Insurance Claims

Long-term disability (LTD) insurance is available primarily through private purchase or by purchasing a policy through a benefits plan offered by an employer. Many people pay the premiums for years only to find they are denied when they attempt to make a claim.

This is disheartening as people are left unsure of their rights and in need of assistance as they deal with the reality of a long-term injury or disability that is preventing them from working.

Kingston Disability Benefits Lawyers

At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, we understand that insurers sometimes fail to uphold the policy contract by erroneously denying legitimate claims. We seek to level the playing field on behalf of our clients, holding the insurance company accountable for the benefits our clients are entitled to as a result of their long-term disability policy.

Common Reasons for Denial of LTD Insurance Claims

Insurance companies often present the following reasons for denying claims:

  • The claimant does not meet his or her criteria for “totally disabled.”
  • Misrepresentations were made on the insurance application.
  • The claimant is deemed to be able to return to work.
  • The disability is a pre-existing condition that was not disclosed.

Claimants are at a disadvantage as they often lack sufficient knowledge of insurance law and are unsure of how to challenge the misrepresentations of the insurance companies.
