Hiring The Right Life Insurance Attorney
Whenever there is an issue with a life insurance policy, it is best to consult with a life insurance attorney. If you have had a denied life insurance claim, you will need to take some time to consider all of your options before making a decision.
There are numerous things you need to take into account while you are looking for an attorney to help you with your denied life insurance claim.
Understanding If You Really Need an Attorney
The first thing that you need to consider is whether or not you actually need to hire an attorney. If the life insurance company has denied your claim, they will typically provide you with a reason why. If the reason they have given you is invalid, or if you do not agree with their decision, then you may hire an attorney.
Cost of Hiring an Attorney
Next, you need to consider the cost of hiring an attorney. If you decide to hire an attorney, make sure you know how much they will charge before you agree to hire them. Consider discussing the cost right after the details of your case. Our attorneys have no fee unless successful!
You also need to consider the success rate of the attorney. You should ask the attorney how many life insurance claims they have successfully handled in the past. This will give you an idea of their experience and whether or not they are likely to be successful in handling your claim.
Attorney’s Credentials are also an important consideration. You will want to check the attorney’s credentials to make sure they are qualified to handle your case. Credentials to consider include:
- The attorney’s educational background
- The attorney’s experience handling life insurance claims
- Whether or not the attorney is a member of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC)
- Whether or not the attorney is a member of the American Bar Association’s Life Insurance Law Section (ABA-LILS)
And Finally, References
References from other people who have used the attorney’s services in the past. If you know someone who has used the attorney’s services in the past, you should ask them for a reference. This will give you an idea of what to expect from the attorney and whether or not they are likely to be successful in handling your claim.
