Denied Claims

A denied claim is one where an insurance company refuses to pay because it believes the insured or policy owner did something wrong.  For example, the insurance company may argue that the policy owner failed to timely pay premiums, the insured person didn't disclose pertinent medical information during the application process, or some other reason allows them to break their promise to pay the claim.

Disputed Claims

Disputed claims come in two varieties: those where the insurance company already paid the death benefits, but they were paid to the wrong person; and those where two or more people claim the same death benefits, but the insurance company hasn't paid the claim to anyone yet.  The vast majority of disputed claims fall into the second category, though we sometimes see claims that were paid to the wrong person.

Delayed Claims

Life insurance companies are obligated to pay claims timely, usually within 30 to 90 days after they receive a valid claim and proof of death.  The exact deadline is set by the laws of each state.  A delayed claim is one where the insurance company has not paid a claim within the time limits set by law.  Sometimes the delay is legitimate, and sometimes it's not.  There can be significant penalties if the delay is improper.

Interpleader Cases

An interpleader case occurs when an insurance company is willing to pay out life insurance proceeds, but due to the possibility that it could end up having to pay twice for the same death, it wants a court to tell it which person to pay.  Usually, these cases arise when two people assert competing claims to the same death benefits, and the law is not 100% clear on who is legally entitled to the money.  Many times disputed claims that are not settled end up in interpleader litigation.

The cost of hiring an attorney prevents most people with valid claims from collecting the money they're rightfully owed.  We don't think that's fair.  Therefore, we won't charge you a dime unless we win.  We will review your case free of charge, and if we accept your case, we'll pay all costs and never send you a bill for our time.  When we win, we'll take a percentage of the money we recover.  If we lose, you pay nothing.  This gives us all the motivation in the world to win your case.  Awesome, right?
