John Wakelin has over 25 years of trial experience. Because we have experience working on both sides of the insurance litigation industry we understand their litigation tactics.
We specialize in COVID 19 related disability claims. If you have suffered a psychiatric or other disability related to the Coronavirus pandemic and have been denied a claim by your disability insurer, we can help get you the benefits you are entitled to.
We are experienced at arguing disability cases before juries. But we are also experts in bad faith litigation where we have acted for both insurers and plaintiffs, and have taken trials to successful verdicts. We understand the tactics used by disability carriers and employers with respect to such claims, both in a union and non-union environment. We understand your fears about your career, employment, medical condition, and future path. We can help you navigate your way through this and make the best decision. If you have had your benefits cut off (or fear they are about to be), or have been asked to attend a disability insurer's "independent" medical assessment and need some advice on how to proceed, contact us.
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SPEAK TO A LAWYER BEFORE ATTENDING ANY DISABILITY INSURER'S MEDICAL ASSESSMENT IF YOU HAVE TIME TO DO SO. IF YOUR ASSESSMENT IS IMMINENT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO ASK YOUR DISABILITY INSURER TO RESCHEDULE YOUR MEDICAL ASSESSMENT TO A LATER DATE FOR PERSONAL REASONS AND USE THAT TIME TO CONSULT WITH A LAWYER.
