Justice triumphs! Yesterday we successfully resolved yet another dispute over a life insurance policy that was denied. I am troubled by the number of cases we see where life insurance companies routinely deny life insurance claims to survivors of a tragic death. Fighting these denials is work that I’m very proud that we are doing!
Most life insurance policies have a two year contestability period. This means that the life insurance company can deny the policy if they can come up with grounds for doing so. Most often, they cite “material misrepresentation” on the part of the applicant. Often times though, these claims do not hold up on review. I hate to be a cynic, but sometimes it seems like some life insurance companies simply try to deny as many claims as possible within that two year period, just to see who is going to bother trying to find a lawyer to fight them about it. Luckily, some of our clients found us to fight that fight for them and I was very pleased to see another one of these claims successfully resolved by my firm yesterday.
As an attorney, I enjoy pursuing noble causes. Helping surviving family members obtain the proceeds that a deceased loved one expected them from a life insurance policy to have is very good work, indeed.
