Ottawa Workplace Safety and Insurance Board Claims

The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (“WSIB”) provides a form of insurance for workers who may become injured while at work.  Work Place Safety and Insurance Act (“WSIA”) was created to reduce the volume of personal injury claims that overburdened the courts, by channeling claims for damages and support through the WSIB system.

Like many insurance systems, the WSIA has created a series of eligibility criteria.  Frequently, persons suffering from a workplace injury are denied benefits under the WSIA.  The law regarding eligibility can be complex and daunting, particularly for someone who has fallen victim to a workplace injury.  The good news is our Ottawa workers compensation lawyers are experienced and skilled at fighting for our clients to obtain fair and just results from the WSIB appeals systems in Ottawa.
