Episode Notes

  • A few years ago I had to stop working due to depression. I was denied LTD so tried to return to work. I could never go back full time. I don’t know what to do anymore, I’ve followed treatment but am not getting better. What do I do?
  • Most of your clients with disability claims are in very difficult financial circumstances.  How is it that they’re able to afford a lawyer?
  • How does the mediation process work?
  • Can a member of a union hire a disability lawyer to deal with a disability claim?
  • I have collapsed and herniated discs in my spine. I’ve been on and off LTD for years. I was finally approved for CPP disability but my insurer doesn’t seem to want to accept my situation.  Is there anything I can do?
  • If someone’s LTD benefits are declined, does it affect any of their other benefits like life insurance?
