Short Term Disability

Although some injuries may be less serious, others may take a long time to recover from or they may even be life changing.
What many people may not realize however is that there could be a waiting period to collect long-term disability payments of up to 90 days from you last day of work.
Since most people would not be able to go without an income for such an extended period of time, short-term disability insurance is meant to fill that gap or to help people who’s injuries prevent them from working, but not for so long that they are able to collect long-term disability insurance. Unfortunately, short-term disability insurance doesn’t always pay out when it should. If you have been denied a claim for short-term disability insurance, the experienced short-term disability lawyers are here to help you get the money you are entitled to. .

How to apply for short term disability?

Most workers who have group insurance plans have disability coverage which includes both short- and long-term disability. Disability claims can be complex because oftentimes the insurance company will want independent reports from their own medical personnel to confirm that you are actually unable to work. The short-term disability lawyers from Alam Law can help you navigate the claims process and ensure that your rights are protected. You should never sign anything from the insurance company until you have consulted with our lawyers. We are experienced in negotiating with insurance companies and we are ready to help you.

Employment insurance claims

Even if you do not have short-term disability coverage either through a group plan or individual plan, you may be able to get assistance through your Employment Insurance (EI). EI short term disability coverage is meant to protect workers who are unable to work for a shorter period of time – or it can fill the gap until they are eligible to apply for long-term coverage through Canada Pension Plan.
Unfortunately, even though EI is supposed to be a safety net for workers who don’t have their own insurance coverage, it does not always work out this way and a claim may be denied. The short term disability lawyers at Alam Law can help you gather the evidence and expert testimony that you need to build your case and negotiate with EI on your behalf.
