Disability/Insurance Claims - Short-Term Disability Claims, Clarington

Short-term disability provides relief to individuals who have been off work for a short period of time due to an injury or illness.  Short-term disability helps the affected individual by providing them with a percentage of their salary while they are unable to work.

If you are unable to work but were denied short-term disability, contact one of our experienced lawyers to discuss the steps you can take to appeal the decision and receive the short-term disability benefits you deserve.  Evans, Michell-Gill lawyers have helped many clients get their short-term disability claims when they have been denied.

There are, however, some restrictions to receiving short term disability claims, including the following:

  • People who are not under the care of a licensed physician
  • If the injuries sustained were intentional
  • If the injury arose during the action of a criminal offence
  • If the injury was sustained while you were off work on paid vacation or leave of absence
Short-term disability benefits that you are entitled to can be obtained through your employer, who can provide you with the application and medical forms needed to file for your short-term disability claim.  You can also apply for short-term disability benefits through a private insurance who would provide you with the forms necessary.
