Many people have life insurance policies, hoping they will be able to provide for and protect their loved ones when they pass away. Many families rely on life insurance benefits to cover costs and expenses following the death of a loved one. Unfortunately, many families have their situation become even more stressful when they learn their life insurance claim has been denied. If you received a denial of your claim, you should consult with a Moorestown Township life insurance denial lawyer as soon as possible.
Some life insurance policies are purchased privately, while others are provided by employers and governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”). While ERISA plans might lead to more claim denials, any type of life insurance claim can be denied for a variety of reasons.
The Garner Firm helps clients appeal wrongful claim denials and fight for the life insurance benefits they deserve. Contact our office directly for more information about how we might help in your situation.
Like any insurance company, life insurers aim to limit benefits and payouts to claimants as much as possible. They have many reasons why they might deny a claim that you believe to be valid, including the following:
For example, some life insurance policies will not cover death by suicide or a death to which the deceased somehow contributed.
Fortunately, an initial denial is not the final word on whether you will receive benefits or not. There are different ways to appeal a denied claim, depending on the details of the specific policy. You should always have an experienced attorney review the denial to determine the best course of action in your case.
Some claims can be appealed to the company itself, and you only have a short period of time to file this type of administrative appeal. If your administrative appeal is unsuccessful, you might be able to file a lawsuit against the insurance company. If the policy is governed by ERISA, this lawsuit will likely be filed in federal court. You want to have the right ERISA life insurance litigation attorney handling your case.

Adam helped me with my LTD case. His knowledge and thoroughness was outstanding. He communicated every aspect of the process and case in an extremely detailed and timely manner. He also took the time to answer any questions I had as a person going through it for the first time. I could not recommend him more for anyone in a similar situation.
Adam and his team are great. They did an excellent job helping my family when we were really losing hope. Adam is very professional and has excellent knowledge to protect your rights.
