    When Do You Need a Long-Term Disability Lawyer in Sudbury?

    Whether temporary or permanent, disability can take away your capacity to earn a living. Since most people cannot rely on their savings alone during periods of unemployment; hence, long-term disability (LTD) insurance can help. If you become too disabled to continue working, LTD policies will ensure you get paid a portion of your lost income. While most people get insurance through their employer, there are also options to buy insurance on your own or even share the costs with your employer. Typically, plans can last you up to the age of 65, but be sure to read the fine print as individual policies vary. If you are seeking compensation, consult a disability lawyer today. The longer you delay, the harder it can be to fight for the compensation you deserve.

If someone has been negligent in their responsibilities and you’ve been injured as a result, you may need to contact a personal injury lawyer to help you pursue legal action.

    At Paquette & Paquette, we can advocate for your interests in court, with insurance companies, and in out-of-court negotiations.
