INSURANCE LAW BLOG

Insurance law falls into three major categories. First, the insurance company will hire lawyers to represent the insured in case they are sued for something related to their insurance contract. These are known as "insurance defense attorneys." The second category of insurance law helps insured people determine when an insurance company must pay a claim. Third, insurance companies typically hire attorneys to make sure the company complies with all applicable laws and regulations, which can vary by state.
