Disability Claim Lawyers in Kingston and Ottawa
Disability benefits are essential to those who are mentally or physically unable to secure regular employment. Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) provides a basic level of income to assist adults with a disability.
To qualify for income support from ODSP, claimants must meet the following conditions, as confirmed by an approved health care practitioner:
- You have a long-term physical or mental health issue, expected to last a year or more
- Your physical or mental health problem limits your ability to work, care for yourself, or partake in daily activities to the fullest extent.
Examples of disabilities include but are not limited to include mental health issues, cognitive impairments, hearing or visual disabilities, chronic diseases and medical conditions, nonvisible disabilities, and personal injury from a motor vehicle accident.

Many who file disability claims at Ontario Injury Lawyers are those living with disabilities inflicted by workplace accidents, unexpected illnesses, or personal injury, some of whom will recover and be able to work once more.
If you qualify for monthly disability benefits, you may need to re-quality after the initial two-year period. If you have been refused benefits but are still unable to work, you need to seek independent legal advice. This varies from case to case, and you may still be eligible for renewal of disability benefits.
We will thoroughly analyze and examine your situation, consult your medical history, work experience, and documentation you have provided in any attempts to prove your inability to resume active employment. If we feel that you have a strong case in support of your claim, we will pursue legal action to obtain the compensation you need.
Ontario Injury Lawyers prides itself on protecting those who might have been overlooked for disability benefits appropriate of their current mental or physical state of health.
