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 Chesapeake 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.

When to Hire a Lawyer

It is in your best interest to get legal help early on in addressing your situation. There are times when hiring a lawyer quickly is critical to your case, such as if you are charged with a crime. It may also be in your best interest to have a lawyer review the fine print before signing legal documents. A lawyer can also help you get the compensation you deserve if you’ve suffered a serious injury. For issues where money or property is at stake, having a lawyer guide you through the complexities of the legal system can save you time, hassle, and possibly a lot of grief in the long run.

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic “road map” on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you’ve laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

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

Affidavit – A sworn written statement made under oath. An affidavit is meant to be a supporting document to the court assisting in the verification of certain facts. An affidavit may or may not require notarization.
