Employees have long-term disability benefits through their employers’ group insurance policy, which provides income replacement benefit in the event of a disability. Such benefits are paid up to the age of 65 if the disability is permanent.

However, insurance companies either deny or terminate disability benefits. For example, they might tell you that you do not have sufficient medical evidence to prove your disability

It is true that in some cases of disability such as chronic pain, fibromyalgia, or psychological impairment (e.g. depression, anxiety), the medical record only shows the employee’s subjective complaints of pain and sufferings and cannot provide any objective evidence to prove their disability.

However, simply because objective evidence is not provided, it does not mean that you do not suffer from a disability. In fact, Canadian courts have awarded damages in cases of chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and mental disorders and ruled that such disabilities are real.

For the first time, the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in the case of Nova Scotia (Nova Scotia (Workers’ Compensation Board) v. Martin; Nova Scotia (Workers’ Compensation Board) v. Laseur, [2003] 2 SCR 504, 2003 SCC 54 (CanLII)) addressed the issue of chronic pain and mentioned that those who suffer from chronic pain experience a real disability.

I just want to say thanks to Kathy Noohi and her team for the countless hours and all the hard work they put into my case. Four years ago I was in a terrible car accident that left me unable to work. I was getting nowhere with insurance and my work was threatening me with dismissal if I didn't return. I had no one to help me and no money to pay someone to help. I called Noohi law to see if they could help and what were my options. They said that they would take on my case and not to worry. From that day forward I didn't only have someone to help me, I had a hole team! They went above and beyond winning my case. They also stopped the harassing letters from work. They treat you like family not just a client. I would recommend Noohi Law to anyone who needs help.
