Resolving Life/Accidental Death Insurance Claims
Are you involved in a life insurance coverage claim denial or dispute? Did your insurer rescind your policy, or maintain that your coverage had 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.
Challenging Denials of Life Insurance Benefits
At the Law Office of Robert F. Keehn, our founding attorney brings more than 25 years of insurance law experience to your battle with a life or accident insurer. As a former insurance defense counsel, he has been on the inside. He knows the strategies, the loopholes, the tactics — and how to anticipate and counter them, to your advantage.
Equally important, Mr. Keehn has carved out a niche handling ERISA cases. If your case involves a dispute about insurance provided under an employee benefit plan, he has the experience to provide effective assistance in challenging claim denials.
The Motivations of Insurance Companies
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.
Insurance companies make more money when they deny claims. They seize upon opportunities to delay or deny life insurance payments. The deceased policyholder could even be accused of fraud or misrepresentation. An application could be examined with an eye to retroactively rescinding or canceling the policy. Insurers also look to the fine print of these contracts, trying to spot policy exclusions that would allow them to deny the claim.
