We Can Help

About Our Fees

Legal costs should never be a deterrent to obtaining your lawful entitlements. For most cases, no “up front” retainer is required. We work on percentage of recovery system and base our legal fees on the results obtained through your settlement or a legal determination.

Does your employer offer group benefits to cover you for short term disability claims and long term disability claims? Most people never need them however it is great to know you will be covered should you need to take time off to recover from an illness or injury.


Years Experience

It is great to know you will be covered should you need to take time off

But is that really the case?

You fall ill or get injured and have to take time off from work; a review of your Employee Benefits Booklet leads you to believe you are covered financially; you speak to your boss and the HR department and fill out all the required forms.

And that’s when the trouble begins

Your Disability Benefits are Denied!

Indeed almost all Short Term Disability plans are funded by your employer and not the insurance company, who are simply hired to weed out as many claims as possible!

Our fees are collected at the end of your case, and based upon a percentage of what we recover for you.

Just when you need to focus on getting better, you have to worry about money because the disability benefit cheques you believed would arrive monthly, fail to materialize.

Or if they eventually do start flowing, you begin getting pressure to return back to work before you are recovered, or maybe you have received veiled threats of being terminated from your employment ; worst of all, your benefits get cut off prematurely due to a technicality.

Eventually, once you do return back to work, your position has been filled and you feel like you are walking around with a bulls-eye on your back. If you are familiar with any of these situations, you need to get in touch with an Employment / Disability Lawyer right away.

A personal injury lawyer will not be able to navigate through this area of law – they simply deal with matters that involve your health and your insurance company.

This is truly a complex employment matter – what you need is an employee’s lawyer who not just understands disability and personal injury law, but is also well versed with matters related to endangerment to your employment security such as constructive dismissal, wrongful dismissal, breach of your employment contract with the denial of your employment benefits, as well as some very serious implications related to breach of your medical privacy.
