People buy life insurance policies with the intention of making sure their family members are not left in dire financial conditions after the death. But when an insurance company denies or delays a legitimate claim, the beneficiaries may be left without any financial means. An already emotionally difficult time is often compounded by financial difficulties and stress over dealing with denied life insurance claims. When a claim is not paid and a dispute arises, the beneficiary will also have to face the complexities and stress of negotiations and possibly litigation.
Our life insurance lawyers work with beneficiaries whose claims for death benefits have been denied. If your life insurance company will not pay, we can help. After years of practice, we recovered millions of dollars in denied insurance claims having helped clients through all the stages of their life insurance claim process.
