Types of Disability Cases We Handle

We at Kotak Law know how daunting navigating the legal maze can be, especially when unexpected disabilities affect your life. However, we are glad to say that our law firm’s expertise spans a wide range of disability cases, ensuring you’re never alone in your fight for rightful compensation in Halifax.


Short-Term Disability (STD): A Temporary Raft in Troubled Waters

A sudden illness or injury can throw your life off course, leaving you financially adrift. Short-term disability (STD) is designed to be your life raft, providing temporary income while you mend your sails.

  • What it is: An insurance policy, often provided by your employer, offering a portion of your salary for a limited time due to a covered medical condition.
  • When to File: Don’t delay! File your claim as soon as your doctor confirms you’re unable to work. The sooner you act, the smoother the journey.
  • Common Challenges: Insurance companies may try to throw you overboard with tactics like claiming your condition is “pre-existing” or not severe enough. Our expert short-term disability lawyer in Halifax is always ready to navigate these treacherous waters and ensure your right to recover is upheld.


Long-Term Disability (LTD): Charting a New Course When the Storm Rages On

When your condition requires a longer recovery, long-term disability (LTD) becomes your financial lifeline, ensuring financial security while you rebuild your life.

  • The Process: LTD claims are complex voyages that require detailed and accurate medical evidence along with a thorough understanding of the legal landscape.
  • Appeal Options: If your claim is denied, it’s not the end of your journey. As a seasoned long term disability lawyer in Halifax, our law firm navigates the choppy waters of fighting LTD denials, building a solid case to maximize the compensation you receive.
  • Kotak Law’s Role: Our lawyers will review your case, decision and claims  file and will implement a litigation strategy to maximize your compensation.

Reduced Stress and Burden

Fighting a disability claim denial alone can be stressful and exhausting.. A disability lawyer handles the complexities, paperwork, and deadlines, letting you focus on your health and well-being.

  • Strategies for Appeals: We analyze your case from every angle, scrutinizing the insurer’s assessment of your medical evidence, their interpretation of your policy’s definition of “disability,” and their adherence to the duty of good faith and fair dealing.
  • Personalized Attention: We understand the emotional and financial toll a denied claim can take. Our team provides compassionate support and guidance, tailoring our approach to your unique situation and needs.
