If an injury at work requires medical assistance and results in lost time from work and income, you may be entitled to file a claim for benefits with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB).
Filing a workers’ compensation claim can be a complicated and frustrating process.
Filing a workers’ compensation claim for a workplace injury can be a complicated and frustrating process. At Cariati Law in Ontario, Canada, we work closely with clients as we vigorously pursue their worker’s compensation benefit claims.

Every Workers’ Compensation claim is different, every injury is different and every employee is different. Don’t speak with anyone except your lawyer, doctors and other medical care providers regarding your claim.
Unfortunately, work comp insurance companies frequently deny valid these claims for a number of reasons. The work comp lawyers at Cariati Law will investigate your claim, negotiate with the insurance company, and present a strong case at a work comp hearing. We are committed to protecting your rights as a hard-working employee who was injured on the job. We can also provide valuable advice about whether you are also entitled to short-term disability benefits under your disability insurance policy.
Be careful when talking with rehabilitation nurses, case managers or vocational experts about your case and about your feelings concerning your case or your job or your return to work. If you have been injured at work, we urge you to contact Cariati Law as soon as possible after your injury.
Obtaining qualified legal counsel early in the process can help ensure your work comp claim is handled appropriately. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may also be eligible to receive short-term disability and long-term disability insurance benefits. We may also be able to help you select your own doctor, rather than choosing a doctor from your company’s list.
Our clients work in a variety of occupations. We represent factory workers, union members, skilled laborers, trades people, secretaries, clerical and office workers, warehouse employees, certified nursing assistants (CNAs), home health aides, construction workers, professionals and other individuals who are injured on the job. Whether you were injured in a work-related car accident, as a result of exposure to toxic chemicals, or injured your back or neck as a result of heavy lifting, our lawyers will fight for the work comp benefits you have a right to receive.
An injury at work can happen suddenly, such as a blow to the head, a fall from a ladder or a construction site accident. Usually there is little question that these types of injuries are covered by workers’ compensation. Other work injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and certain back injuries can gradually become worse over time when the wrist, back or another body part is repeatedly stressed by lifting, hammering, keyboarding, or overuse. Repetitive stress injuries are compensable under Canadian workers’ compensation laws when they are caused by work activities and result in the need for medical treatment or cause disability.
Comprehensive Representation Throughout the Work Comp Claim Process
The workers’ compensation claims process is complicated. Cariati Law lawyers provide personal services to our clients throughout the course of their claim. From the first report of injury, to filing a claim petition, fighting a denial of benefits if necessary and presenting your case at work comp hearings and appeals, our lawyers will stand up for your rights. Our goal is to ensure you receive all of your workers’ compensation benefits in as timely a manner as possible.
Do not sign anything about your Worker’s Compensation claim unless you speak with a lawyer. Do not sign any paperwork regarding a settlement or a permanent disability rating unless you have consulted with a lawyer regarding your rights.
