Can I get an estimate of my settlement before fighting for my claim?
Your lawyer would need full disclosure of the terms of your disability policy, and an accurate estimate of your monthly income in order to determine the potential value of your case. Despite this, many other factors are involved in deriving a reasonable estimate of your claim, such as: your clinical notes and records, any offsets such as CPP or severance, or potential bad faith and punitive damages against the insurer. Some of this information may not become available to your lawyer, until a law suit has been filed, and documents between the parties have been exchanged.
