What Does an Insurance Lawyer Do?

An “insurance attorney” is a type of lawyer that handles all forms of tort litigation related to insurance claims. They can either represent the insurance company or policyholder depending on who hired them. When representing the policyholder, the goal of the insurance lawyer is to ensure they receive maximum compensation for their claim. In some cases, the goal may be to hold the insurance company accountable for damages if proof of bad faith exists.

It’s highly recommended you hire an insurance lawyer if you’re filing a property insurance claim. A skilled attorney can assess your policy to determine if the damage is covered under your policy’s terms. If it is, they can then compose a claim for you and include necessary supporting evidence. Once the claim is filed, your attorney can then take over all direct communication with your insurance agent or adjuster.

Negotiations with insurance companies can be tough. However, if you have an insurance lawyer on your side, you can rest easy. Your attorney will ensure all procedures for processing and investigating your claims are executed. They can address any possible disputes or issues that may come up along the way with your insurer directly. If the insurance company refuses to settle, your attorney can then take the next step to file a lawsuit against them for being in breach of contract.

If you’ve already filed your claim, no need to worry. You can still hire an attorney to address any disputes with your insurance company. They can even rewrite the claim, find additional evidence, and file the claim again to ensure it is covered under the terms of your policy.
