Settling Life/Accidental Death Insurance Claims
Are you facing the possible denial of life insurance coverage? Did your insurer rescind your policy, or maintain that your coverage lapsed before an accident that claimed the life of a loved one?
Life insurance and accidental death policyholders and their beneficiaries have certain legal rights to challenge such actions. If the insurance was employer-provided, this includes rights under an important federal law known as ERISA.

He will devote special attention to your case to help you receive your benefits.
Understanding Your Situation
California families obtain life insurance coverage to protect their loved ones. Unfortunately, after a policyholder’s death, the beneficiaries sometimes are confronted with an insurer’s delay, denial or dispute of benefits that are rightfully theirs.
Sadly, insurance companies make money by denying claims. They may look for reasons for denying or delaying policy payments. They may even accuse a deceased policyholder of misrepresentation or fraud. They may examine an application to rescind or cancel the policy retroactively. Insurers could include in the fine print of these contracts specific exclusionary language.
An Attorney Who Will Fight A Life Insurance Denial

Robert works hard to help you obtain your benefits, and if possible, financial and emotional distress damages, attorney fees, and, where the conduct of an insurer is reprehensible, punitive damages.
