Types of Insurance Claims

Insurance lawyers have an in-depth understanding of their client’s cases and provide strategic advice that satisfies their client’s goals and demands. Examples of insurance claims that Insurance Lawyers handle include;

Home Insurance Claims

This is a claim filed by residential property owners when their homes sustain damages. Such damages include storms, flooding, and fires. Home insurance policies have a liability limit that details how much coverage the insured has in instances of unforeseen events. Insurance lawyers assist their clients in identifying how much they should be compensated for damage sustained to their property.

Health Insurance

Health insurance policies provide cover for medical costs and healthcare services. The insured needs to read the terms and conditions set-out in the policy to ascertain whether it provides adequate coverage for their needs. Insurance lawyers help their clients when their claims are denied, or their coverage is ended.

Vehicle Insurance

In Australia, registering a car requires having mandatory third-party insurance. Yet, many kinds of auto insurance exist depending on the requirements of the driver.
Insurance lawyers provide legal advice when disputes arise about vehicle accidents or insurance law, and the next steps the insured should take.

We Are Recognised for Our Expertise Beyond Sydney

You Are Our Top Priority

Because we are a small team, we seldom have the conflict of interest issues that often arise in larger firms offering insurance law services and advice. If you value honesty and transparency, our solicitors are here to help.

Streamlined and Cost-Effective Solutions

Litigation can be a costly and time-consuming exercise for insurers and claimants. We aim to resolve claims disputes before litigation, if possible, via the internal review systems of insurers and through professional negotiation. Our specialist solicitors are here to provide legal advice and support so you can make informed decisions that suit your situation.

Where such a resolution is not possible, our solicitors aggressively pursue our client’s rights and entitlements in court, often against larger firms. Unfortunately, we are unable to assist with small claims but are happy to refer enquirers to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority or to other firms.
