Life insurance policies serve to provide family members much needed financial stability after a loss.  Unfortunately, insurance companies often refuse payment, deny benefits or pay only a fraction of the benefits due under the policy.  Even having issued thousands of life insurance policies, insurance companies have the resources to easily comb through paperwork and identify policy language that they can use to exploit technicalities for their benefit, not yours.  However, often times a seemingly proper denial is actually improper under state or federal ERISA law.

When questioned by an experienced insurance litigation attorney, insurance companies are less likely to engage in tactics such as issuing improper denials and relying on technicalities to deny claims.  A life insurance lawyer can help hasten your recovery by making sure your claim is complete, accurate and timely.  An experienced life insurance attorney will ensure you meet the strict timelines in the appeals process and help you aggressively challenge any improper determinations.  Then, if the insurance company still insists on denying your claim, your lawyer can file a lawsuit to force the insurance company to pay you not only life insurance policy benefits, but also potentially insurance bad faith damages, punitive damages, emotional distress damages, attorneys’ fees and interest.
