Experienced Attorneys for your Individual and Group Life Insurance Claims
Our lawyers have assisted the firm’s clients with their life insurance claims, claim denials and disability-related coverage issues. An employee with a disabling accident or illness may wonder what will happen to company-provided life insurance coverage if claims for short term disability or long term disability are filed. Our lawyers can advise regarding the availability of continuation coverage through conversion rights or disability waiver of premium benefits. For clients with a life-threatening illness, our attorneys can help with filing a claim for accelerated benefits – the advance payment of benefits directly to the employee. Our lawyers have also assisted clients to recover benefits where life insurance companies have erroneously denied claims or improperly sought to rescind, void, or invalidate the life insurance policy (see life insurance claim denials and life insurance policy rescission actions). The firm has assisted clients with coverage provided by a wide variety of insurance companies, including: Hartford, MetLife, Transamerica, Northwestern Mutual, Prudential, Unum, New York Life, Reliance Standard, John Hancock, U.S. Life, Phoenix, and Mutual of Omaha.
