If your life insurance claim has been denied, there can be many causes. Here are a few of the most common reasons for life insurance claim denials:
These are common reasons for denial, but they certainly aren’t the only ones. Insurance companies are highly motivated to increase their profits by denying or reducing claims and will use nearly any reason they can to stall or deny claims. Seeking the representation of a skilled San Diego life insurance claims attorney tells the insurer that you won’t tolerate being pushed around and that they need to take your claim seriously.

The federal law that oversees private employee benefits is the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), and it includes a number of protections for employees, such as:
If your employer or plan provider fails to uphold their responsibilities, you may be able to take action against them. These cases are complex, and you should always begin by reviewing your circumstances with an experienced life insurance disputes attorney.
