How We Work With You

We will meet with you, review your case, and advise you. We pay thorough attention to your requirements and build a close working relationship with you so you understand what is going on and what needs to be done at all times. If you are applying for benefits, we will assist you with your application. If your application has been denied, or your benefits terminated, we will deal with your insurer on your behalf to get your claim approved.

One of the benefits of working with Gaertner Baron Professional Corporation is, in addition to having the necessary knowledge and experience to provide Disability Counsel, we are also seasoned Litigators. This means that, if necessary, we can seamlessly enforce your rights through the Courts.

Why Should You Use a Lawyer Instead of Trying to Do It Yourself

There are various laws and legal principles which affect your entitlement to benefits. For example, different standards apply depending on the wording of your policy, and whether you are applying for short term disability or long term disability benefits. Also, disabled persons are protected by the Ontario Human Rights Code. Understanding the interaction between these laws and principles is necessary to determine what you are entitled to. We understand the law and we know how to cut through the red tape and get your benefits approved.
