Berkeley Life Insurance Claims Lawyer

Protecting your loved ones with life insurance is important, but what happens when the insurance company denies your claim? You have the right to fight back, and a Berkeley life insurance claims lawyer can help.

At Monahan Tucker Law, we understand how a denied claim can add frustration and fear to an already difficult time. We also know that insurance companies work hard to maximize their profits and often deny or delay valid claims. We have a proven track record of successfully challenging insurance companies and getting our clients the benefits they deserve. Now, we’re ready to help you.

Legal Oversight of Life Insurance Plans

Many employers choose to offer their employees life insurance coverage as a perk of employment. Employers who do offer private benefits like life insurance are held to tight restrictions that are overseen by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), which implements protections in relation to employee rights.

Not all life insurance policies are governed by ERISA. Plans offered to church and government employees, for example, are not subject to ERISA, and neither are plans you purchase yourself, such as through a bank. Understanding which regulations will apply to your claim is important, and a skilled Berkeley life insurance claims lawyer can assist you.

Valid Life Insurance Claims are Often Denied

If your claim was denied, it could be due to a number of reasons. While each claim is unique, there are some commonly used reasons for denying life insurance claims, such as:

  • False information on the application – A simple mistake in filing out paperwork could be used to claim there was an intentional misrepresentation. We have helped clients successfully push back on these allegations.
  • Exclusions related to suicide, substances, or intentional acts – We have seen insurance companies attempt to blame the deceased for their unexpected passing, and we know how to present evidence to counter these claims.
  • A lapse in payment – Even if a payment on your premiums was missed, it may not be your fault but can still result in denied benefits. 
  • Accidental death and dismemberment policies – Claims can be wrongly denied if the insurance company tries to blur the distinction between accidents and illnesses.

No matter what reason the insurer has given you for denying your claim, it is always wise to have an experienced Berkeley life insurance claims lawyer review your case and discuss your legal options.
