Life Insurance Lawyers in Los Angeles | Annuity Claims Law Firm
Los Angeles Life and Annuity Insurance Attorneys
You purchase life insurance policies and annuities so that your loved ones will have the benefit of the policies after their passing. Unfortunately, insurance companies often do not honor the promises they made and they deny you and your family members and other loved ones the life insurance and annuity proceeds that you and your family members thought they were securing.
There are many types of life insurance and annuity products that are governed by different laws and provide for different types of damages. If the life insurance policy or annuity was purchased directly from the insurance company without employer involvement, you might be entitled, not only to the life insurance and annuity proceeds, but also “consequential damages” that are caused by an insurance company’s bad faith conduct, emotional distress, punitive damages, attorneys’ fees and interest on past-due benefits (typically at the legal rate of 10%). If the life insurance policy or annuity was obtained through an employer, the life insurance policy or annuity is most likely governed by ERISA, in which case you can sue for policy benefits, attorneys’ fees and interest due on the unpaid benefits.
Regardless of the type of life insurance policy your loved one purchased, you are not helpless if an insurance company denies your life or annuity insurance claim. In many cases, what may seem like a proper denial, is improper under the law. We have over 25 years of experience litigating life and annuity insurance cases. In fact, the attorneys of the McKennon Law Group previously represented the insurance companies that denied such claims and thus have the broadest possible experience in litigating these types of insurance disputes.
