Episode Notes

  • What happens if I begin a disability legal claim but I want to return to work eventually? Will this make a return impossible?
  • When callers have asked how long they can expect it to take to resolve their claim, they’re told 8-10 months after they sign a retainer.  Can it be quicker than that?
  • My husband injured his back and the inability to work led to more pain and depression. He was denied LTD as they said it was a “workplace issue”. Can we appeal?
  • With the cold weather upon us, what advice do you have for our listeners if they are injured in an accident because of bad weather?
  • I’ve been on LTD for ten years and after I was approved for CPPD my insurer became more pleasant. Am I required to give yearly updates?
  • I hit my head and suffered a concussion. Since then I’ve had a constant headache and can’t concentrate. I was denied LTD as my job is sedentary. Do I have a case?
  • While clients are waiting for the claim to resolve, they obviously aren’t making any money and aren’t getting any benefits.  What should they do for money while they wait?
