Trusted Disability Lawyers in Sudbury

When a personal injury results in a disability, you may be entitled to file a disability claim with your insurance company. If you or a loved one have been suddenly injured or ill, you may qualify for disability insurance. In such a scenario, you might need the assistance of a reliable disability lawyer. At Paquette & Paquette, we have a team of experienced disability lawyers in Sudbury who can help you file your claim and get the compensation you deserve. Get in touch with us to discuss your claim.

A disability claim requests income assistance for an individual who believes that a physical or mental disability hinders their quality of life. You may find that you cannot keep your previous job and therefore require disability insurance to restore a portion of your lost income.

DISABILITY CLAIM VS. WORKERS’ COMPENSATION: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Both workers’ compensation and disability claims compensate people for injuries and illness. However, there are distinct differences between the two. Workers’ compensation is money received for work-related injuries and illnesses. Usually, an employer purchases workers’ compensation insurance to pay employees should they be hurt on the job. Employees who collect workers’ compensation do not typically have a disability but a temporary injury. On the other hand, a disability claim or disability insurance pays a part of a worker’s earnings if they can no longer perform their job duties due to injury or illness. For disability insurance, you will usually pay a premium towards it through an employer-sponsored benefit plan.

 

DO I QUALIFY FOR A DISABILITY CLAIM?

In order to receive income support through a disability claim, you first have to qualify. Qualification is based on two factors: your financial situation and your disability status. You must know your and your family’s personal and financial information, including who makes up your family, the number of children you have, and the number of dependent adults in your family. Housing costs, income and asset information, are also required to determine your financial situation. Disability status is based on whether your mental or physical impairment is continuous and expected to last for a year or more. This disability must result in a substantial restriction of your ability to work, take care of yourself, or take part in community life. If you aren’t sure if you qualify to file a disability claim, talk to one of our disability lawyers in Sudbury.

WHY A DISABILITY LAWYER SHOULD HANDLE YOUR CLAIM

Many people often believe they can handle their disability claims without a lawyer. However, if you are not familiar with the law or the disability claim procedure, you risk making mistakes that can’t be fixed, thereby losing the claim amount you could have received. Lawyers with expertise in handling disability claims have the right information and understanding of the law and can effectively file the claim and initial appeals. Having our disability lawyers in Sudbury by your side gives you peace of mind knowing that your claim will be handled correctly.

FAQS

Answering some common questions below:

 

What Do I Need to Know about Short-term Vs Long-term Disability?

The primary difference between the two terms is the length of time a condition lasts. For example, a broken limb takes less time to heal, allowing the worker to resume their duties at work once they heal. In the meantime, a worker is liable to receive short-term disability benefits. Other disability benefits don’t heal in a definite period making the worker unable to perform their duties. Our lawyers at Paquette & Paquette have experience handling long-term disability benefits claims.

 

What If My Long Term Disability Claim Gets Denied?

 

If you have received a denial from an insurance company, you have the option to appeal and take assistance from disability lawyers, who will guide you on which medical reports to be submitted. Hiring our disability lawyers will give you peace of mind. Before selecting any organization to handle your claim, there are certain questions to ask a disability lawyer to understand their approach.
