How and when to hire an attorney for insurance disputes

While most people believe that their insurance companies have their backs, there can be times when there might be a reason that you need to fight them. Usually, these insurance disputes pop up when a company does not believe it has to pay what you believe you are owed. When this happens, there are a couple of things you can try to do to resolve the issue.

The thing to keep in mind is that while the insurance dispute can seem like a real problem for you, it’s also not something the company itself is wanting to get involved in. This is a headache no matter what the issue is. This means that there is a chance you can resolve the dispute simply by talking it out.

There are a few things to remember if you decide you want to try and work things out one on one. The main thing you should know is that the company is not allowed to lie about what is in your policy. If you feel they are doing this, then you need to contact a lawyer immediately, as well as the proper authorities. What happens more often than not is that the insurance company and yourself are reading the policy in different ways.

If you believe this is just a disagreement, then you can work through your broker to come to an agreement with the company. This would also be the time that you should hire a company like Licari, Walsh & Sklaver, LLC to help.

By hiring a Connecticut insurance attorney you will be prepared should the insurance dispute end up at court. This would be the last resort but if you believe that the insurance dispute cannot be resolved any other way, then you can indeed head to court. If you do go to court, you will defiantly want a Connecticut insurance attorney on your side. The insurance company will be bringing attorneys of their own.
