Most disability insurance attorneys are paid on contingency. That means they are paid a percentage of the benefits they recover. In the situation of a lump sum settlement while a claimant is on the claim, also known as a buy-out, attorneys are typically paid a percentage of the lump sum settlement. This is usually worked into the fee agreement in place between the attorney and the client.
Sometimes clients come to us after receiving a settlement offer from their insurance company. At that point, we may be able to negotiate a higher settlement amount from the amount offered. In that situation, the fee is based on the difference between the offered amount and the higher negotiated amount.
Whether you are on claim and represented by counsel or on a claim and handling it yourself, a lump sum settlement may be a good option for you. A lump sum settlement is a final payment. Once you agree to it and sign the release, you and your insurance company part ways entirely and you will no longer receive benefits or have coverage.
If you have received a settlement offer from your insurance company or are interested in obtaining a settlement, contact a disability insurance attorney who can guide you through this process.
