Expertise In All Aspects Of Insurance Law

In order to understand insurance law, it is useful to understand insurance first. Insurance is a contract in which one party (the "insured") pays money (called a premium) and the other party promises to reimburse the first for certain types of losses (illness, property damage, or death) if they occur. Insurance law falls into three major categories.
First, the insurance company will hire lawyers to represent the insured in case the company is sued for something related to his insurance contract. These are known as "insurance defense attorneys." For example, an automobile insurance company will hire an attorney / lawyer to represent an insured driver when the company gets sued for causing another driver's injuries.
The second category of insurance law helps insured people determine when an insurance company must pay a claim. Third, insurance companies typically hire attorneys/ lawyer to make sure the company complies with all applicable laws and regulations, which can vary by state. There are many types of insurance. The government runs some kinds of insurance, like Social Security disability, worker's compensation, and unemployment insurance.
However, the term "insurance law" usually refers to the law surrounding private insurance. The most common types of private insurance are health insurance, automobile liability insurance, homeowner's insurance, life insurance, title insurance, and malpractice insurance.
