Accidental Death and Dismemberment Lawsuits

Buying an accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) policy is often an act of love. The person paying for it usually won’t be the one benefiting from it but rather their family or other beneficiaries. It’s a hedge against the worst-case scenario, a way to make sure those left behind, or those dealing with a serious injury, will survive financially. AD&D policies are often purchased as an addition to standard life insurance. They are sold as an opportunity to greatly increase both the value of the life insurance and the financial security the family or beneficiary stands to receive. But the conditions for AD&D policies are a lot more restrictive than regular life insurance. They are meant to cover only accidental deaths and dismemberment injuries.  

The narrower terms of coverage are what makes AD&D insurance so affordable, but they also give the insurance companies more ways to deny claims — even ones that seem to be completely justified. These companies are not in the habit of missing opportunities to decline payments.  Over the years, we have seen that insurance companies will try to apply extremely narrow definitions of the terms “accidental death” and “dismemberment injury,” and thereby limit how often and how much they payout. But courts have often sided with policyholders when it comes to arguing over these definitions, and the insurance companies don’t want to go to trial. Instead, they’ll try to intimidate and frustrate you and try to get you to walk away.  If your AD&D claim is being denied or delayed, don’t give up. That’s what the insurance company is hoping you’ll do.

Why AD&D Claims Get Denied Guide



Morgan & Morgan

  • Your Case Starts With ‘No’

    Morgan & Morgan’s insurance recovery group attorneys have fought every tactic and technicality insurance companies employ to get out of paying claims. Our lawyers know all the dirty tricks and how to fight them. They’ll know if the insurance company is dealing with you straight or if they’re needlessly delaying. And most importantly, they can help you get the AD&D payout you’re owed.  The insurance company will be searching for a way to declare the death or injury as not covered under the terms of the policy. It may claim that the death was caused by a medical condition, or that the beneficiaries missed a filing deadline, or that a payment was missed. It will pore over the accident details and the entire paper trail of its relationship with the policyholder, just looking for an opening. And it will be looking to discourage you, to convince you that your case is hopeless, that you should just go away. It might ask for unnecessary paperwork, or avoid meetings or phone calls. It might shuffle you endlessly between different departments. All the while, it will be hoping you don’t call a lawyer — and especially not Morgan & Morgan. 

  • Don’t Give Up

    If you’ve had an AD&D claim denied or delayed, it’s important that you call us right away. Very often, these policies have filing deadlines and paperwork requirements that can cause serious headaches or even a final claim denial if they’re missed. Getting us on board as soon as possible means less stress for you throughout the process and a much better chance of a successful outcome in your case. You don’t have to go it alone against a powerful insurance company to get the policy payout you are owed. And it will cost you nothing upfront, nothing throughout the process, and nothing at the end unless we win for you. In some states, the insurance company is obligated to pay our fees if we win, which means you may never have to pay at all. When we take on your case, we are committing ourselves and all the resources we have to fight for justice on your behalf and for your family. Contact us today to set up your free, no-obligation consultation and start fighting back.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.
Georgia J.
General Injury
It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

Slip and Fall
I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

Homeowners Insurance
I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
