It is important to find the right lawyer who understands the unique challenges faced by individuals dealing with a disabling medical condition, especially when legal matters arise. Whether it’s submitting an initial claim to your insurance company for disability insurance benefits, fighting a wrongful denial of short-term or long-term disability insurance benefits, or filing a lawsuit against your insurance company, having an attorney with the expertise and experience working with clients who have disabilities can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.
Not All Lawyers Are the Same
First and foremost, it’s important to understand that not all lawyers are equipped with the knowledge and experience necessary to represent clients with disabilities. This means that finding the right lawyer is not only important but it’s also essential to securing a successful outcome. Luckily, there are a few key steps you can take to identify lawyers who specialize in certain types of disabilities.
Ask The Attorney About Their Track Record In Court
Any disability insurance attorney can say they have a high success rate. But what does that really mean? The best way to differentiate the real fighters is to ask for proof of their success in court. If an attorney says they win disability insurance cases, ask for the court orders.
Most ERISA disability insurance cases do not make it to judgment. The majority settle for a lump sum settlement at some point during litigation. But not every case should be settled. You want an attorney who is willing to take your case to judgment. And you want an attorney who has a track record of winning disability insurance cases in court. At Dabdoub Law Firm we have a track record of winning disability insurance cases in court. You can read about our success in court here. And if you want to see the court orders, just ask.
Ask for Recommendations
One of the easiest ways to find a disability insurance lawyer is to ask friends, family, colleagues, or people in your community for a recommendation. You can also reach out to online support groups and social media groups and ask for referrals.
Search the Internet
Another option is to conduct an online search for attorneys who specialize in disability insurance law. This will likely yield a long list of lawyers, so it is important to search through their website, watch their videos, and read the online reviews.
When you’ve narrowed down your list of potential lawyers, it’s important to schedule consultations with each of them. During these consultations, ask about their experience representing clients with your disabling condition and your insurance company, and most importantly, ask about their success rate in court. It’s also important to discuss fees and payment options.
In conclusion, finding a lawyer who specializes in disability insurance law is crucial to ensuring that your legal rights are protected, particularly if you or a loved one has a disability and can no longer work. By taking the time to identify lawyers with the expertise and experience in this area of the law, you’ll increase your chances of securing a successful outcome.
