Episode Notes

  • My insurer cut off my benefits despite my doctor saying I was disabled and they’re saying I can do another job. What are my options?
  • Is there a hierarchy in an insurance company between the claim adjusters and legal department adjusters?
  • My dad got in an accident while he was driving a company car and was injured. They’re telling him he has to choose between Worker’s Compensation and a lawsuit.  He also has LTD benefits through his employer.  Is he able to use this as well?
  • I’ve been on LTD for 10 years through work as well as CPPD. I’m worried my insurer company can cut me off. I have a severe disability. Can they do that?
  • When someone starts a legal claim, do their doctors need to get involved in the process?
  • What happens to my long-term disability benefits if I am not longer with my employer?
  • I was a police officer and had a disagreement with a supervisor and was suspended. I was deemed unfit due to PTDSD unable to return to duty. I’ve been told to apply for WSIB, are there any dangers to this?
  • After two years does my LTD stop and am I then transitioned onto CPPD?
  • I had surgery a few years ago and the materials used caused many other medical conditions and I never fully healed. I’m not currently disabled but it could be headed that way. Do I have a claim?
  • Why is starting a legal claim more effective than an appeal?
