Claimants may have state law rights which allow them to have their legal fees reimbursed by the carrier if they win. Most states, including New Jersey and New York, do not provide for these rights for private disability insurance. However, if you recover punitive damages for a carrier’s “bad faith” your legal fees will most likely be covered. Our New Jersey insurance claim attorney can assist you claiming insurance benefits.
