Resolving Insurance Claim Disputes

When you run into resistance from an insurance company in paying your claim, you don't have to sit at home amid aggravation and financial anxiety. You can take action with assistance from an experienced insurance law attorney to challenge claims denials or other actions by insurers that adversely impact you.

Understand Your Legal Options

If a claim denial concerned disability coverage or other benefits under an employer-provided plan, your options for challenging the denial are bolstered by a federal law called ERISA. At the Law Office of Robert F. Keehn, in Los Angeles, we have the ability to assert your interests in a wide range of insurance claim disputes, including those involving ERISA.

Robert F. Keehn has practiced insurance law for more than a quarter-century and uses his strong litigation skills to pursue positive resolution of insurance claim cases for clients across California. If you are unsure about what to do after a claim denial, contact him for a no-cost, confidential consultation about your case.

ERISA and Overlap With Employee Benefits Disputes

Not all disputes about employee benefits involve ERISA. But many do — even if employees aren't immediately aware of it.

There can be significant overlap between ERISA and other employment-related disputes. Like many people, you may never have heard of ERISA. But when you seek to challenge your employer's insurance company for wrongfully withholding payment of disability or other benefits, you may find that ERISA provides you with certain advantages that you didn't realize you had.

Using our experience with ERISA, we can advise you on how to proceed.

Other Insurance Disputes

Of course, there are also insurance claim disputes that take place outside the context of employer-provided insurance. Our firm is well-positioned to help you resolve those disputes as well. Founding attorney Robert F. Keehn started as an insurance defense lawyer and has been handling insurance cases for more than 25 years.

The disputes can involve such issues as:

  • Accidental death or disability (AD&D)
  • Life insurance
  • Long-term care insurance
  • Non-ERISA disability cases
