Answers to FAQs
What is a disability lawyer?
A disability lawyer is a lawyer who focuses their legal work on disability-related claims and issues. There is no official certification for a lawyer to be a disability lawyer. So, really any lawyer can say they are a disability lawyer. You have to do your own due diligence to determine the extent of a lawyer’s experience with disability claims.
Why hire a disability lawyer?
If you are off work for disability, we expect your number one priority is retaining financial security. The right disability lawyer can help you get payments approved faster than you can do on your own. This is why we are big advocates of early intervention from a lawyer.
What does a disability lawyer do?
Disability lawyers are responsible for many things, including:
- taking over all communications with the insurance company
- getting a complete copy of your claim file from the insurance company or agency
- identifying the red flags that are causing (or will cause) your claim to be denied
- obtaining medical reports and other records necessary for claim approval
- preparing your application forms or appeal letters
- filing lawsuits against the insurance company
- negotiating approval of your claim or a one-time financial settlement
Can I afford to hire a disability lawyer?
At Resolute Legal, we believe everyone should have access to quality legal representation, no matter their financial circumstances. We work on a contingency fee basis. So, you down owe us anything upfront, and our legal fee is a percentage of the funds we get for you.
How long will my claim take?
This will depend on your situation. We have won cases as fast as a few weeks, or it can take several months. In rare cases, it can take years. There are a number of variables that make this nearly impossible to determine before you hire us and a lawyer has had a chance to review your claim file.
What are the problems with hiring a disability lawyer?
In our experience, the biggest problems with hiring a disability lawyer are: 1) Hiring a lawyer when it isn’t necessary, 2) Realizing the lawyer is a bad fit after you hire them, or 3) Getting overcharged by the lawyer. We help you avoid these problems by educating you about the disability claim process. During your free case evaluation, we give you our honest opinion on whether it makes sense for you to get a lawyer. We help you avoid buyer’s remorse with our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. We take away your fears of being overcharged with our Fair Fee Guarantee.
Who is the best disability lawyer in St. John’s?
There is no consensus “best disability lawyer.” In fact, the rules of professional conduct prohibit lawyers from calling themselves “the best.” Some lawyers have tried to get around this with “lawyer awards.” These awards are a roundabout way to imply someone is “the best.” Some lawyer awards are legitimate, but many are dubious at best. In some cases, no more than a paid endorsement. The organizations that regulate lawyers have cracked down on dubious lawyer awards because they are misleading to the public. Take any so-called “lawyer award” with a grain of salt.
