Do You Have an Insurance Law Problem?

The area of law encompassing insurance in general as well as insurance policies and even claims against an insurance policy is rightfully called insurance law. If you have a problem regarding insurance, whether it be in regards to regulating insurance policies or with the handling of a claim, an experienced East Setauket insurance law lawyer can help.

Different Types of Insurance

Insurance is available for almost any type of peril or danger, including natural disasters, theft, property damage, fire and even personal injury claims. The purpose is to protect you in case something damages whatever property you have insured.

Insurance law governs how policies are written, the duties and obligations under individual insurance policies as well as the protection you can receive against third party claims. Insurance law can also protect insurance companies against fraudulent insurance claims.

What happens when my claim is denied?

If you receive a claim denial, whether it’s for car, health, homeowners, disability, or any other kind of insurance, you likely have the option to appeal. If you believe your denial was illegal or your insurance provider was acting in bad faith, you should consider consulting with an attorney to discuss your options. In some cases, you will be able to handle the appeal yourself.

What does my insurance cover?

This is where it’s important to read the fine print. Every insurance policy – health, home, renters, car, disability, etc. – will list instances in which your coverage is not valid. For example, some health insurance policies cover certain surgeries, but not physical therapy. It’s important that you understand what your policy does and does not cover.

How much insurance do I need?

This is best left to your best judgment. If you anticipate having trouble affording premium payments, then you may have no choice but to pay for less coverage. However, if you think that there is a chance that you will need coverage, and any losses will far exceed what you pay in premiums, you should consider purchasing more. Take your budget into account.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances – such as being charged with a crime – where you should always seek experienced legal help.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney’s experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

Types of legal fees:

Bill by the hour: Many attorneys bill by the hour. How much an attorney bills you per hour will vary based on a number of factors. For instance, an attorney’s hourly fee may fluctuate based on whether that hour is spent representing you in court or doing research on your case. Attorneys in one practice area may bill you more than attorneys in a different practice area.

Contingent fee: Some lawyers will accept payment via contingent fee. In this arrangement, the lawyer receives a percentage of the total monetary recovery if you win your lawsuit. In sum, the lawyer only gets paid if you win. Contingent fee agreements are limited to specific practice areas in civil law.

Flat fee: For “routine” legal work where the attorney generally knows the amount of time and resources necessary to complete the task, he/she may be willing to bill you a flat fee for services performed.

Common legal terms explained

Plaintiff – a person or party who brings a lawsuit against another person(s) or party/parties in a court of law. Private persons or parties can only file suit in civil court.

Judgment – A decision of the court. Also known as a decree or order. Judgments handed down by the court are usually binding on the parties before the court.
