Long Term Disability Claims for Teachers
Goldfinger Injury Lawyers has particular expertise in dealing with Long Term Disability Claims on behalf of unionized teachers . We have successfully settled countless claims against Manulife and The Ontario Teachers Insurance Plan (OTIP). We are proud to have assisted a number of teachers over the years get the long term disability benefits and damages which they deserve after being wrongly denied by their long term disability insurer.
These claims can be challenging and emotional.
Many of our teacher clients have worked for decades for a particular school board and given their sweat and tears towards education. But, because of reasons entirely out of their control they are no longer to return to do what they loved doing most: teach.
Make no mistake, teaching is a difficult job. It requires high levels of energy, organization, prolonged standing, prolonged concentration and the ability to manage with others (students, administrators, fellow teachers and parents). Even the most experienced teacher can have problems in the workforce which require time off to avoid burn out.
We have assisted teachers in establishing their long term disability claim for physical injury; such as an injury their back, knees or neck. Our lawyers have assisted teachers with respect to long term disability claims for psychological injury such as PTSD, anxiety and depression. Our lawyers have assisted teachers in handing claims for illness such as fibromyalgia on its own; fibromyalgia with associated depression/anxiety, crohn's/collitis, cancer, heard disease, liver disease, and MS. Our lawyers have also assisted a number of teachers with the long term disability claims for a combination of physical and psychological disabilities.
