Long-term Disability Claim Lawyer for Calgary, Alberta and Saskatchewan

Ludwar Law Firm is the right choice when you are looking for disability lawyers in Calgary. Many of our province-wide clients come to us after having disability claims turned down by insurance companies or by Canada Pension Plan.


The burden is on you to prove that you are disabled. Insurance companies in Alberta and Saskatchewan are not required to conduct their own investigations of your ability to work and often do a poor job of telling you what is needed to prove your disability. So even if you have a doctor's report, your insurance company may not accept it. Often, the problem is not that you aren't disabled; it's that your evidence isn't considered good enough. Ludwar Law Firm provides experienced long-term disability lawyers in Calgary, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. Our lawyers can help you get your rightful claims paid.

What Conditions Qualify for Long-term Disability?

Long-term disability claims lawyers in Calgary can get your insurance company or Canada Pension Plan to look at your disability evidence again.

You don't need to have a specific diagnosis to "prove" your disability; you only need to show that you cannot work. Because many conditions have very similar symptoms, some of our clients have been given many different diagnoses by different doctors. Some of the more common conditions we see are:

Reasons Why Your Long-Term Disability Claim is Denied

Many of these conditions are difficult to prove and are not taken seriously by insurance companies. Our Calgary long-term disability claims lawyer knows how to explain your functional limitations and how they prevent you from doing your job. An experienced long-term disability claims lawyer can explain and also explain how your disability may affect your future.

At Ludwar Law Firm, we see insurance companies deny claims for many reasons, these include:

  • Your symptoms were not properly "proven."
  • You still have the ability to do jobs that are similar to your own.
  • You still have the ability to perform some parts of your former job.
  • You have the ability to work at some jobs, even if they are significantly lower wage than what you had before your disability.
  • With conditions such as depression, chronic pain or chronic fatigue syndrome, because you are sometimes able to perform all or parts of your former job, you may be considered "able to work" even if you are unable to show up for work reliably.
  • Your disability may not have been considered serious enough.
