A claim attorney specializes in cases involving insurance law and insurance settlements. They represent the company or client in the negotiation and settlement processes, acting as their attorney in court. They use their knowledge and expertise to provide solutions on legal issues to claimants seeking payouts from insurance companies.
Claim attorneys usually work in insurance companies and law firms that represent insurers or claimants. It is crucial that they stay in touch with the evolving state laws and regulations. A successful claim attorney should have extensive legal knowledge and experience, negotiation skills, communication skills, analytical skills, research skills, and attention to detail.
Most claim attorneys work full time 40 hours per week from Monday to Friday between 9 and 5. Those in private practice may work additional hours in the evenings and during the weekends conducting researches and preparing and reviewing documents.
