Disability insurance companies may offer an internal appeal process and often it is a waste of time. Insurer’s rarely change their decision through this appeal. A more effective solution is to have a disability lawyer commence a law suit against the insurance company. At Kotak Law we will issue your claim quickly and move your case forward towards a settlement. Remember you are not alone. We can help.

How long you are entitled to receive long term disability benefits depends on the wording of the insurance policy. Most policies provide for disability payments up to age 65 if you meet the definition of total disability. Some policies have shorter benefit periods and a few provide for payments beyond age 65.

Coverage for disability is governed by the insurance policy. In general long term disability policies will provide for payment for any type of illness or sickness that prevents you for performing the essential tasks of your employment and for payment after two years if you are prevented from performing any employment that you are suited to by way of education, training or experience. Some covered ailments include depression, anxiety, chronic pain, heart disease, cancer, fibromyalgia, migraines, IBS, organ failure, strokes, inflammatory disorders and neurological impairments.

Insurance companies often deny short term disability claims. Some reasons insurance companies give are:

  • There is insufficient medical evidence.
  • Video surveillance shows you doing things you said you couldn’t do.
  • Your social media posts show you as active and not showing signs of depression.

At Kotak Law we help clients who have been denied short term disability. We can help. Call us for a free consultation.

A disability lawyer represents people whose disability benefits have been denied or cut off by an insurance company. They will gather medical evidence to establish that a claimant meets the definition of total disability as set out in the insurance contract. They will commence a claim against the disability insurer and obtain a settlement or court order with the instructions of the client.

At Kotak Law our practice focuses on helping clients receive disability benefits when their ability to work has been impaired by anxiety and depression. We obtain records and reports from doctors who have provided treatment and we present evidence in support of the claim in order to secure a just compensation award.

At Kotak Law we only get paid when we settle your case. Fees are calculated as a percentage of what is recovered plus disbursements. There are no hidden fees and everything is clearly set out in a written retainer.

Personal Injury

A personal injury case involves a situation where one person is injured due to the fault of another. Common types of personal injury cases include car accidents, slip and falls, dog bites, and defective products.

  • Call the police
  • Call for an ambulance if needed.
  • Take pictures and secure the names of witnesses if you are able to.
  • Take down the information of all parties involved (licence plate(s), drivers licence(s) and insurance information)
  • Contact your insurance company within 7 days.
  • Follow up with your family doctor.
  • Contact a personal injury lawyer at Kotak Law to discuss your case.

It could take from a few months to several years to resolve a personal injury case in Ontario. Many factors influence the length of time it takes. This includes the severity of the injury, how many parties you have to sue, if there is a dispute over who was at fault and inherent court delays.

  • My experience with Kotak Law Lawyers was simply amazing. Nainesh Kotak represented my case with great care and attention. The level of empathy and comfort provided meant the world to me. I truly felt Mr. Kotak and supporting staff made the difference between a very stressful experience to one that went smoothly with a positive outcome.

    Rajiv Hate in the Kotak Law Firm did a wonderful job in handling my long term disability case. From the initial phone conversation, I had the feeling that I was with the right lawyer since he made me feel very comfortable and confident that I can rely on him. Throughout the case, he is professional, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable in the area of long term disability. Whenever I have any concerns about my case and need a clarification, he validated my concerns and responded with explanations. Because of his expertise and astuteness, the case had a successful outcome and was resolved in a timely manner. I would highly recommend him to the families and friends if they need a lawyer in this field.

    Kotak just helped me few days ago to successfully close a second case. In the first one, Rajiv Hate, who is a phenomenal lawyer with Kotak helped me to get much more than I expected in a settlement due to an awful motorcycle accident. And now with a LTD case (non-related to the motorcycle accident) Rajiv did it again, he just helped me to settle my case getting a much higher compensation than I initially estimated. The level of professionalism, attention to detail and kindness showcased by all the team at Kotak and by Rajiv in particular have been insuperable and a constant in both cases. Don't waste your time with any other law firm as I did before I contacted Kotak for my first case, call them and request to talk with Rajiv, you won't regret it!!
