Legal Counsel (personal accident insurance compensation) - Italy

Scroll to content
Every year millions of EUR of personal accident insurance compensation go unclaimed! Why so?

One of the main reasons is that it is complicated to go through the insurance claiming process, which requires time, knowledge, and patience.

With Insurello, there is no need to understand insurance-specific language, be equipped with plenty of time, or have a specific background. We want to help all people claim their accident insurance compensation smoothly and transparently online. Our vision is to rebalance the power between customers and the insurance companies, enabling fair compensation for all.

The role 

With a well-established team and operations in other countries, we are just tapping into the Italian market. Being one of the very first employees of Insurello in Italy means plenty of opportunities for professional development.  You will be the one providing in-house legal support for insurance claim cases and a go-to person for questions related to legislation and legal processes in Italy. Even though we are new on the Italian market, we have the Legal team to share their experience from other markets.

More particularly, the role entails: 

  • Handling complex insurance claims (primarily personal injury claims) and assess them from various legislative perspectives;
  • Assessing rejected cases and appealing unreasonable rejections;
  • Advising the team on how to optimize the claim process to reduce rejection rates;
  • Educating Claims Specialists about general legislative principles;
  • Helping evaluate Insurello's core business, making it more effective and scalable in the new market; 
  • Helping the team to build structures and procedures of business operations while bringing the legal and compliance perspective.

The experience and skills that will support you in this role:

  • A minimum of 2-3 years of practical experience with legal processes (up to 5 years will suffice); ideally with hands-on experience handling insurance claims compensation or dealing with legal aspects of personal accidents.
