If you have suffered an injury that has resulted in disability for a short period, you may have an opportunity to sue the person or the organization for causing harm and costing you income-earning opportunities. This will also allow you to seek compensation.
You can approach Kalsi & Associates personal injury lawyers to seek legal advice and know whether your situation qualifies you for short-term disability benefits. Some employers do offer short-term disability benefits to their employees. The length of time that you need to be unable to work in order to qualify for these benefits varies from company to company.
You should first acquaint yourself with the rules and regulations of your company on this topic and try and avail any benefits of this policy if they are available. For those, who don’t have short-term disability benefit, there is an opportunity to qualify for Employment Insurance Sickness Benefits.
Whatever be your situation, Kalsi & Associates personal injury lawyers will provide you sound legal advice and help you in knowing your entitlements resulting from a purchased policy or due to being a member of any organization.
You may also require legal advice if you have insurance coverage and the companies are unwilling to provide cover for your short-term disability. As you may know or have experienced, insurance companies can often have very convoluted procedures and rules which might be difficult for a layman to understand. In such situations, our team of lawyers will help you in navigating the labyrinthine maze of regulations and allow you to gain those benefits which you are entitled to.
Remember, while we never wish anyone to suffer even the mildest injury, one never knows when and how he could be affected by an accident. If you find yourself in such a situation, don’t despair thinking of yourself as alone and helpless, we will have your back.
