You pay your insurance company a lot of money, and you expect to be taken care of if you were ever to take a major loss on your home or car. Unfortunately, not all insurance companies have your best financial interests in mind. Usually, your insurer is hoping to give you a minimum payout. In cases like these, you need an aggressive lawyer to fight for the good coverage you deserve. Knowing the resources, you can use in an insurance claim will help you get a maximum payout from your insurer.

How do I know if I need a lawyer for my insurance claim?

If your insurer continually gets back to you in writing and in person and you are able to be polite, confident, assertive and insistent on your rights then you may be able to continue on without hiring a lawyer. Many people who feel like they’re getting nowhere with their insurer, getting anxious, angry and worried that they are losing their rights can benefit from hiring a lawyer. Hiring a lawyer can help you get respect and the results you deserve in your claim.

How can I find the right lawyer for my insurance claim?

Make sure to hire a lawyer who specializes in insurance. You want someone with experience and who has gotten good results. Get referrals from friends, family and other attorneys. Interview candidates about their insurance and trial expertise and get referrals from some of their former clients. Select an attorney who is confident in themselves and in your case.

Should I let my lawyer do all the talking to my insurer?

First, try to maintain communication with your insurer based on the advice your lawyer gives you. You don’t want your lawyer to come off too aggressive as this might anger your insurer and slow down the process. If you’ve made your best effort and your insurer isn’t treating you fairly, you should let your lawyer take over for you.
