Life Insurance Claims
Life insurance claims are processed by claims adjusters – people who are not “on your side,” no matter how helpful a demeanor they may have. Haney Law Office, P.C. in Grand Rapids, Michigan, represents life insurance claimants (individuals who are trying to get a fair shake from a life insurance company). We work to protect the rights of the insured – the individuals and families who are left behind after the death of a loved one.
Strategies Employed by Life Insurance Companies
Unfortunately, life insurance companies try to minimize the amount of money they give to claimants – whether by simply being prudent or by trying to delay or even deny the payment of a life insurance policy’s benefits. Life insurance claims may be obstructed by an insurer in a multitude of ways, such as:
- Disputing the policy’s coverage
- Underpayment of claims
- Errors or omissions in life insurance coverage
- Failure to pay a claim
- Delaying the payment of life insurance benefits
- Passing a claimant’s case file around and around to various personnel within the insurance company
It’s Never too Late to Speak with Us
Our law firm is always happy to speak with and provide free initial consultation to help you avoid common mistakes in the claims process. Life insurance claim problems can also occur long before the claim is filed. For example, in some cases, the source of the problem is the employer who sponsored the life insurance policy. An employer may identify the wrong beneficiary or make other errors in the interpretation of the insurance policy.
