Choosing a Long-Term Disability Lawyer
If your insurance company has denied your long-term disability claim, you should immediately hire a long-term disability lawyer. With their powerful legal team and endless resources, your insurance company will try and intimidate you into dropping your claim. This is a battle you should not even attempt to handle on your own.
It is important that you choose the right disability lawyer for your case because it could impact the course of your future. Because it is such a vital decision you might find it somewhat overwhelming, especially when you already have so much to deal with.
Here are some of the main qualities to look for when choosing your long-term disability lawyer in Edmonds, Shoreline, or throughout the greater Seattle area.
Specializes in long-term disability insurance law
With so many rules and regulations, long-term disability insurance law is extremely complicated. This is why it is crucial to choose a disability lawyer with the knowledge of what to expect, as well as the track record to prove it.
If you’re appealing a denied disability claim it will be in your best interests to choose a lawyer who specializes in this area of the law.
Knows the law in your area
Disability laws differ from one state to another, and the procedure for challenging denials can vary from county to county.
To give you an example, the Western and Eastern Districts of Washington State are administrated differently. If you are fighting a disability claim denial in Spokane, your claim may not be subjected to Seattle court rules.
Hiring a lawyer who is familiar with the nuances of state disability laws and local court regulations can make a significant difference in the result of your claim. That is why it is critical to select a disability attorney who is not only licensed in your state but also has extensive expertise and knowledge of the law in your area.
Honest and truthful
Your chosen disability lawyer should be truthful and give you an honest assessment of your case, whether good or bad. Don’t be taken in by any empty promises or guarantees.
Read reviews from past clients to see if your lawyer is trustworthy.
Compassionate and understanding
At a time when you are already finding things difficult you need a lawyer on your side who will be both compassionate and understanding. Find someone who, besides listening, will believe you and give you all the support during the process.
