WSIB and Ministry of Health hearings and appeals can be scary, confusing and frustrating, especially for the employers who do not have the time or the resources to deal with a WSIB claim or may be struggling with a language barrier. Ryan-Dowsett Paralegal Services has an extensive amount of experience dealing with complicated claims, and winning at appeal - more than 15 years of it! We know how to prepare and present your case in the way that allows the Hearing Office or Adjudicator to understand the facts that clearly support the employer’s standing.
Employers without a representative often fail to win the support of the Appeals Officer because their focus is on the wrong facts. Most aren't even aware of all their rights and may find themselves in a situation with no source of income. We keep in mind that employment law is written to PROTECT THE EMPLOYEE. Therefore, we use a strategic approach to shine the light on the employer’s strengths while highlighting the weaknesses in the opposing side’s case.
Sometimes all you may need is help with filling out forms and while sometimes you may need us to assist you with your entire case. At Ryan-Dowsett Paralegal Services we can do both! We have an excellent record of winning on Appeal, whether this means overturning decisions, mitigating fines, or resolving issues without going before a hearing official.
