Denial of Life Insurance Policy
When a loved one dies, the payment of life insurance proceeds can be crucial to your family’s financial security and to your rebuilding process. It is common for life insurance companies to launch investigations as soon as they learn of a death. Sometimes, they deny that death has occurred altogether.
If they find what they consider to be material misrepresentations in the deceased application for life insurance, they may also deny your claim. Your life insurance company may also deny your claim by asserting that the death was the result of a non-covered exclusion, such as suicide. Sometimes, the true cause of death is unknown, and the medical examiner and the life insurance company do not always have the final say. In these situations, it is wise to have an attorney skilled at negotiating with insurance companies fighting for your compensation.
Denial of Disability Insurance Policy
Individuals can suffer life-altering injuries that result in a disability. These disabilities commonly prevent a person from returning to work and making a stable living. Insurance companies will deny or challenge your disability insurance claim. They will immediately launch an investigation and hire experts who will state that you are still able to work. These companies will state that you are not actually disabled, or that there was an exclusion in your policy. As soon as you have been injured, we strongly encourage you to contact a firm experienced at negotiating with insurance companies and fighting to protect your financial well-being.
