Life Insurance

The death of a family member is traumatic and painful. If that person was relied upon to provide financially, the monetary survival of those left behind is at risk. 

That’s why life insurance exists. Purchasing a life insurance policy is a decision to try to protect the beneficiaries from financial disaster if the worst should happen. The expectation is that the insurance company will pay the agreed-upon death benefit in exchange for all those months and years of paying the premiums. And the family trusts that their trauma and pain won’t be compounded by the prospect of losing their home or not being able to send their children to college. 

And it’s not just families. Life insurance policies are also commonly used by businesses to protect themselves financially in the event of the death of a core partner, executive, or employee. 

But insurance companies won’t pay the death benefit if they think they can get away with it. And they can be very creative in trying to do so. If that happens, know that you don’t have to fight alone for the benefits you need and deserve. Morgan & Morgan insurance recovery lawyers have fought every tactic these companies attempt, and with the help of an attorney, you’ll have a much better chance of a successful resolution. 

Ways They’ll Try to Deny 

Depending on the situation and the company in question, the bereaved family or hobbled business may face one or more of the following ploys: 

  • Retroactive Cancellation: The insurance company will claim that the policy was voided, expired, or wasn’t paid for prior to the death.
  • Death Doesn’t Qualify: It will claim that the way the policyholder died is not covered.
  • Misrepresentation: It will allege that the policyholder misrepresented essential facts about himself or herself in the agreement, therefore voiding the policy. 

This is not an exclusive list. Insurance companies are exceedingly creative because denying claims means more money in their pocket.

Competing Claims

In addition to denied claims, other problems can arise with life insurance. Often, there can be a competing-claims dispute between a newly added beneficiary and the claimant, or a beneficiary who has been removed from the policy and still pursues a claim. Whether an ex-spouse, new spouse, a child, stepchild, friend, or business partner, these situations can be complicated.  Determining the rightful beneficiary and proving their claim successfully can be taxing, painful, and lonely. Morgan & Morgan takes competing-claims cases, and we fight to get our clients the benefits they need and deserve.
