If you have the time and inclination, you can go to your area's (Providence?) public library (help available) or the internet to read your area's code for workman's comp (whatever it is for Cananda). You can also go to the internet and view the code of a US state code. You will get a general idea what is considered a permanent disability, etc.
I was engaged in a family dispute regarding an estate controversy for a couple of years. I represented myself against an opposing attorney, drafted and filed petitions, answered petitions, twice filed a Complaint against the attorney with the state bar (lost but my complaints were on record and provided a history) representd myself at a hearing, etc. and I prevailed. I studied state Supreme Court rulings, District court rulings, state code for estate, etc. You can do the same with Canada's disablity law or get an understanding of the law, represent yourself, or see an attorney if you feel the law is applicable for your situation.
There is saying those who represent themselves in a legal battle has a fool for a client. I was lucky, tenacious, and most important had the law on my side. If you have a strong case, you may be able to get a lawyer on a contingency basis. Also, something that may strengthen your case is to get the opinion of a doctor (that may make the difference of winning or losing).
HI I have prinzmetal's angrina to I been in the hosp 9x starting in12-07 todate my med have changed 7x my med today or isosorbide mono 60 mg 2x aday nifedipine 60 mg1x aday nitroglycerin .4 mg as needed also amitriptyline 10mg at night
i still have chest pain about 2-4x aweek
Thanks for your advice, I do have a letter from my current cardiologist stating that I am not to return to work and I sent it to the ins co where it fell on deaf ears. I think my immediate concerns are, what would be the consequences of my return to work? How much risk, i'm not afraid of work but I don't want to die there just to satisfy those greedy people. They say there is no arbortration process, can they do that? They say that if a person can perform 60 % of they're duties, that they are not disabled. I say thats fine for a stock boy but what about an airline pilot?
You are correct, work circumstances makes a difference. And I don't believe the airline pilot would be required to go to work in a stock room either. The issue may be whether it is work related for insurance disability, and for an airline pilot the stress on the job can cause an attack of severe chest pain.
Workman's comp here in the states has partial and full disability, physical and/or mental. There are on-the-job stress claims of anxiety, depression that qualify for total disability!
There may be a case were one's physical health causes disabling mental functionality, and here in the US that condition would be covered by social security!
Do you get the early morning attacks? Does it feel like you're going to die? I have let them go as long as I can to see what will happen but always end up taking the spray. Once, in the hospital they wouldn't let me take the spray, just kept increasing the morphine, longest 1/2 hour of my life. I just realized what I have a short while ago and have had no one to talk to, the doctors don't tell you ****.
yes i get the attacks in the morning. its a very very bad feeling , i try to work everday but i get very sick i don't like taking the nito . i get very bad head pains.when i go to the hosp they give ntio by iv it works the chest pains go away for the time being in the hosp.
