Disability insurance provides protection. While private insurance groups cover some disability expenses, when the disability was caused by someone else’s negligence, in some cases they can claim back the amount they paid. Before you sign any releases, you need to be sure to include language regarding that protection in the claim.
That is why it’s important to have a lawyer from Aylward, Chislett & Whitten on your side when you’re filing a claim on your disability insurance. We’ll ensure that the negligent party’s insurer is responsible for those charges, and not you – otherwise, you may end up having to pay that fee after you settle. Don’t rush into a settlement, since the costs you incur may outweigh the amount you get in the settlement!
