The most important question to ask a disability insurance attorney you are considering hiring:
Have you recently won a disability insurance lawsuit in court?
If the attorney says they have, ask them to send you a copy of the court’s orders. You want proof.
If they say we have not won a case in court but go on to explain all the other reasons they think they are the best attorney for your case, you should think twice.
Things to look for when choosing the right disability insurance lawyer:
1. A track record of winning lawsuits in court;
2. Expertise in disability insurance law.
Be wary of law firms that:
1. Cannot prove they have won cases in court;
2. Offer lower contingency fees than the normal rates.
Why is it important that your disability lawyer have a record of winning disability lawsuits?
Having an attorney with a reputation for winning disability insurance lawsuits is important for all stages of a disability claim: initial claim, appeal of a denied claim, and lawsuits. The truth is disability insurance cases are often won by the insurance company. This is because the law that governs most disability insurance claims, ERISA, is a tough law that favors insurance companies. With that advantage, insurance companies deny valid claims and look to offer cheap settlements.
Your disability insurance case is very important. The outcome of that case can affect the rest of your life. And because it is too important to gamble on—you will want to choose the right law firm.
Disability insurance law is a small practice area, so most insurance companies are used to seeing the same lawyers in litigation. With our track record of winning disability insurance lawsuits, insurance companies know (1) we don’t just settle our clients’ cases for pennies on the dollar, and (2) that we will take a case all the way to judgment if our clients are being treated unfairly.
If you have a disability insurance case and you are doing your research on which attorney to hire, you should ask each one about their track record in court. It will help you ween out the firms with just good marketing and fancy websites, and help you choose the right disability lawyer.
