Losing a loved one can shake someone down to their very core, especially if their life was taken from them in an accident that could have been prevented. The surviving members of the family are often left to pick up the pieces on their own, but with a successful insurance claim, they could recover the compensation they need to cover the expenses surrounding the situation, plus some additional restitution to allow them to cope with their loss as they move through their lives.
However, this can only occur if the insurance company behind the victim’s surviving family acts responsibly with the incoming claim, as there have been situations where unethical insurance providers have diminished or denied their client’s claim, despite being more than eligible for benefits.
Funeral homes often get the short end of the stick in these situations. If the insurance company denies their client’s claim after the funeral is held, it begins a long, grueling back and forth between the funeral home and the insurance provider of their customer, often leaving the funeral home without repayment for the services provided. Those within the funeral home industry know this situation very well, as it’s caused organizations to lose hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue, but there is hope for the future.
