What if my injuries are preventing me from returning to work?

If you can’t return to work, you should notify your employer. There are options to assist you financially and it’s important that you focus on your recovery. You may be entitled to Income Replacement Benefits from your insurance company, as well as short-term or long-term disability benefits through your employer.  You may also be entitled to Canadian Pension Plan (CPP) or Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) benefits.

What if I can’t go back to my old job?

Your employer may be able to offer you a modified or alternative position, depending on the job. If you refuse the modified position, which may include less pay, the insurance company may not be required to provide further job placement or training assistance.

If your employer has no modified or alternate employment available, they will need to provide you with vocational rehabilitation benefits. Vocational rehabilitation is designed to get you back into the labour force through direct placement or by providing you with the necessary training for another occupation.

What if I am a student and can’t return to school?

If you can’t return to school, you are eligible for educational expenses incurred before the accident for tuition, books, equipment, or room and board. Your expenses can’t be greater than $15,000.00.

Here’s What Our Clients Say

  • Often the public perceives lawyers in a negative way; but I can honestly say that David Himelfarb has the utmost ethical standards of any lawyer that I have dealt with. He took the time to explain the particulars of my case, was always available to take my calls, always returned my calls and his team of Clerks and Assistants were equally as professional and courteous. Should I ever need legal representation, I can assure you that I will retain his firm.

  • I would like to extend a sincere thank you for your assistance regarding the legal issues and my claim for disability benefits. Your knowledge and expertise led to a quick resolution and a successful outcome. From the onset, you were honest with me about my case and yet always kept me in the loop as to what was going on. I appreciated your “up front” approach from our first meeting.
