How Our Lawyers Can Help You
If you were injured and became unable to work, our New Jersey disability lawyer may be able to help you. Long-term disability insurance claims often turn into long and drawn-out legal battles that can be highly stressful. Many claims are based on the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, which requires a special level of knowledge to properly understand in most cases. The goal in most disability cases is to obtain the largest disability settlement possible.
Your New Jersey disability lawyers should work tirelessly to probe into the inherent conflicts of interest presented by the insurance company. Disability lawyers keep extensive databases of information on each insurance company to expedite the research process and get started on a strategy that works for your case. Knowing how your insurance company usually fights disability claimants can help you stay ahead of the game and avoid any tricks they may try to use to throw off your case.
Reliable New Jersey disability lawyers only take cases they believe they can win. This means that you can be prepared to have the highest quality representation possible before you go into court. Alternate dispute resolution is also an alternative to a full trial solution. Voluntary mediation can result in a fair and reasonable settlement, but the insurance companies must first be made to respect you and the case you bring to the table. Your success in litigation depends almost entirely on the quality of your initial claim and the appeal you filed when it was rejected. Lawyers work hard to make a claim or appeal airtight because it makes a court decision even easier to win.
What You Can Do
You can choose to be involved as much or as little as you want during litigation. If the stress of litigation is too overwhelming, your attorneys can manage your case for you and ensure that you have minimal involvement. On the other hand, if you want to be involved, your lawyers can ensure that you have as much say in the process as possible. Whether you are highly involved or want to be shielded from the stress, your disability lawyers should always keep you informed about the latest developments in your case. You should receive copies of all paperwork your lawyers send out as well as documents they receive from your insurance company. A reliable lawyer is accessible to answer any questions you may have about the process of filing a lawsuit or whether you should accept a given settlement. Getting to a reasonable settlement figure is often difficult, but the reward is often well worth the stress and hard work, especially since it yields long-term financial and practical benefits.
