Long Term Disability Benefits
Have you sustained injuries and can no longer work? If yes, then you are entitled to short or long term disability benefits to replace your income during the time you will be away from work. However, you need to understand that only those covered under a disability plan can qualify for such benefits. If your employer provides these benefits the better, but you can as well buy the plan privately on your own from renowned disability insurance providers spread out across Canada. For instance in Ontario, Manulife, Sun Life and Great West Life among others are some of the common disability insurance providers.
You can actually imagine the kind of inconvenience long lasting or permanent injury can cause in your life; can’t take part in your favorite pastimes, can’t visit your friends or even go to work to earn a living! The fear for such instances has indeed prompted many Ontarians and Canadians in general to get long term disability covers. With the help of long term injury lawyers ad medical professionals, you can actually get compensation that will get your live back in control.
A long term disability lawyer will represent you whenever you are severely injured or ill that you can no longer work. Depending with the terms of agreement with your long term disability insurance company, you will be able to get a certain percentage of your pre-injury income to cover for medical bills, rehabilitative and home care among other expenses.
Types of injuries that will qualify you for disability benefits
There are actually no specific types of injuries that qualify one for long term disability benefits; everything literally depends with the type of cover you purchased from your insurance company. The bottom line however is that any kind of injury that will cause severe physical disability like paralysis, paraplegia and quadriplegia among others automatically qualify you for compensation by your insurance company. These forms of disability may be as a result of car accidents, motor cycle or bicycle accidents, boating accidents and slip and fall accidents among others.
Other chronic illnesses and disabilities including chronic pain may also be considered for compensation since they can as well disrupt your ability to work for a long period of time.
