How Good Lawyers Help Insurance Rates

lawyers-insurance-ratesLawyers can help your insurance rates in a number of ways. Suppose you were involved in an accident that was not your fault. It was reported to your insurance company in the normal course of procedure. Your insurance company is being required to pay a portion of the damages and as such raises your rates.

A lawyer could have stepped in and gone against the insurance company of the driver at fault, so your company would not be required to pay anything and therefore would not affect your insurance.

If you get a ticket for speeding, a lawyer may be able to have the ticket reduced if not totally wiped out, something we can not accomplish by ourselves. If you are charged with driving under the influence or any other much more serious charge, your insurance rate could raise exponentially. Here is where a lawyer can really help you; a lawyer can successfully have your charges minimized. Having those charges reduced can have a very strong positive influence on what your insurance company decides to change your insurance to. It could have a difference between your being listed as normal or high risk.

If you have an issue where your insurance company is involved, it’s a good idea to consult an attorney and find out if there is reason to engage his or her services.
