Our lawyers and staff members understand the physical and emotional stress that a disability causes, and our goal is to help disabled people and their families ease the financial burden caused by a sudden lack of income. We know that dealing with a disability litigation claim can be extremely difficult. Whether you're suffering from long-term disability or partial disability, our firm specializes in cases involving Long Term Disability Insurance Policies (LTD), Canada Pension Plan Disability Claims (CPP) and Workplace Safety & Insurance Benefits (WSIB).
Long Term Disability (LTD)
Long Term Disability Insurance Policies are usually available to people through their employment by way of a group plan. Some people have their own private plans. Insurers can terminate coverage quite abruptly and leave you without adequate income. This can leave you and your family in financial peril. Our team of skilled lawyers has experience with disability claims and can move quickly to ensure the continuation of benefits. When dealing with a Long Term Disability Insurer, it is highly recommended that you retain a law firm experienced in handling these claims to provide you with equal bargaining power and the ability to secure disability benefits in an expeditious fashion.
Canada Pension Plan (CPP)
Himelfarb Proszanski is also experienced in Canada Pension Plan Disability claims and can help you apply for these benefits and represent you in the appeal process. You may be entitled to CPP Disability benefits if you have sustained a severe and prolonged disability and contributed premiums to the Canada Pension Plan in 4 out of the last 6 years prior to your disability.
Workplace Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB)
If you have been injured at work or while you were in the scope of your employment you may be entitled to Workplace Safety & Insurance Benefits. Himelfarb Proszanski has lawyers skilled in these claims and the appeal processes relating to them, including appeal hearings at all levels of appeal. Sometimes you may be able to elect out of the Workplace Safety & Insurance Benefits system and sue the at fault party for causing your injury. It is very important for you to consult with a lawyer to help you determine whether this is an option available to you.
