Do You Feel That Manulife Has Unfairly Denied Your Short Term Disability Claim?

Does this scenario seem familiar?  You or your employer pay premiums for a Manulife disability insurance policy with the expectation that one day if you can’t work your disability insurer will honour its obligation to pay you disability benefits.  Unfortunately, you cannot continue working due to a physical or mental condition. You complete the application for disability benefits properly and your doctor sends a supporting form on your behalf.  You wait anxiously for your disability payments to begin and Manulife does the following:

1. Asks you to send the more records or forms repeatedly.

2. Calls you often and asks why you can’t work.

3. Pressures you to attend a particular rehab or vocational facility.

4. Calls you and tells you that there is a lack of evidence to support your claim.

5. Causes you to feel anxious or sad.

6. Denies or terminates your disability benefits in spite of what your own physician says.

7. Alleges that you have a pre existing condition.

If the above sounds familiar be rest assured that you are not alone.  The disability lawyers at Kotak Personal Injury Law are familiar with the manner in which long term disability claims are denied by disability insurance companies.
