on your side turn a zero to a hero.
Don't be afraid to consult with an attorney. Sometimes they are the best or only option to getting the claim settled. You are not hiring a bulldog here, just someone who is familiar with insurance coverage and can apply that knowledge to your case.
When you have hit a wall with your claim, it is time to consult with an attorney to determine what your options are and get started in the right direction. In any injury case, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible.
Engaging an attorney is as simple as signing a contingency fee contract assigning them the authority to represent you. Their fees may range depending on the type of claim and when they get involved, but are usually a percentage of the settlement which means that you won’t be paying unless they recover a settlement for you.
Turn a zero to a hero
Engaging an attorney who specializes in your specific area of need is a great way to present your case with the right leverage.
Will there be enough money after my claim settles?
Obviously, that is the ultimate goal. The attorney should be well aware of your needs as they pursue your claim. However, this is a negotiation process so there are no guarantees. By design, they will do the best they can to recover as much as they can for you.
How long does it take for my insurance claim to settle?
That depends. Some attorneys who handle a high volume of claims actually meet with carriers monthly to discuss a handful of ripe cases and, if you’re lucky and your case is one of them, your claim could settle in just a few months. Realistically though you should consider 9-18 months.
Will my insurance claim case go to court?
Not typically. Often times an attorney will consider mediation as a means to reach a settlement. However, on large claims, the chances of a trial increase. This also will depend on your settlement expectations and the advice of your attorney.
when hiring an attorney, you are engaging a professional who has a working relationship with the experts and has the law at their fingertips to assure your claim is settled justly.Find a Professional Now
