Our clients have worked in a variety of different industries, which include clerical and office workers, auto mechanics, taper and drywall workers, construction workers, painters, electricians, general labour and forklift operators, assembly line workers, butchers, housekeeping, truck drivers and others. We have successfully represented unionized and nonunionized employees. Our primary focus is related to claims with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), previously called Workers Compensation Board (WCB), and Canada Pension Plan (CPP) disability benefits, including oral hearings and tribunals, before the Workplace and Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT) and the Social Security Tribunal (SST). The Workers Compensation Advocate paralegal, Robert Govaert, has over 20 years of experience handling claims through all stages of the appeal process. Robert Govaert has helped many clients recover additional, retroactive and ongoing benefits. Most of our work comes from referrals from lawyers, paralegals, health care professionals and from previous clients who were pleased with the outcome of their claims. Some noteworthy WSIB cases Robert Govaert has won include: • Winning the first dog hearing ear dog in Ontario (entitlement and costs) • Entitlement to Parkinson’s Disease following a head injury • Entitlement to cancer that developed at the site of a workplace injury If you had a serious work injury, call us for a free consultation.

I was very pleased with the way Robert Govaert handled my Canada Pension Plan (CPP) disability benefits case. Robert was very professional throughout the appeal process and he kept me informed with every step he took in my case.

I was upset when WSIB cut my benefits and my previous lawyer couldn’t help me. From my first consultation with Robert Govaert, I felt comfortable with him and confident that I had a chance to win. Robert Govaert helped me win over $500 000 for my work injury. I am so happy and excited.

From the first interview my case was handled in a professional way. Robert Govaert helped me recover over 20 years of retroactive pension and supplementary benefits for life. The extra monthly benefits really help me in my retirement.

Robert Govaert gave me the hope to proceed with a Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) appeal, when I had given up and thought no one could help me. Mr. Govaert helped me win back over 4 years of work injury benefits, ongoing benefits and coverage for my medications. I am really happy I found the right person to help me out and get my life back on track.

I injured my back and shoulder and I was denied benefits at the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT). Other law firms refused to take my case. Robert Govaert from Workers Compensation Advocate not only took my case, he recovered over 22 years of work injury benefits and ongoing benefits for life, including personal care.
