As personal injury lawyers, we deeply wish each and every victim of accident and injury could make a total recovery, returning to their usual career, family activities, and hobbies. However, the unfortunate reality of the situation is that permanently disabling injuries happen to Canadians every day. An estimated 3.2 million Canadians report that disability impedes their ability to function in their day to day life.
Many people live happy and fulfilled lives with permanent disability. However, the privilege of this type of fresh start relies on the injured party’s ability to access the necessary healthcare, rehabilitation, counselling resources, and financial support. When an individual is prevented from re-entering the workforce due to serious injury or illness, they can file for long term disability insurance to improve their quality of life following the injury.
Permanent disability claims are more complex than some other areas of personal injury law because they deal with longer periods of time, greater life changes, and often, larger sums of money. Dye & Russell is prepared to fully represent you through this difficult journey and ensure that you get the opportunity to live a full life post-trauma.
