What are your rights if a life insurance company denies your claim for life insurance proceeds after the death of a loved one? Life insurance is purchased for peace of mind, and to provide some financial support to loved ones in the event of an unexpected or untimely death. Unfortunately, sometimes insurance companies deny valid life insurance claims without appropriate justification. Far too often, the denial goes unchallenged and insurance companies save millions in unpaid claims, all while retaining premiums paid. Often times the denial of life insurance claims will be based on some apparent inconsistency in the medical records and application for life insurance. For instance, did the applicant accurately disclose all of his or pre-accident health issues. Other times, the insurance company may say that the claims falls under an exclusion. While some denials are valid and enforceable, there are many life insurance denials that are not appropriate.
If a life insurance company has denied your claim as the beneficiary, you owe it to yourself to have the denial reviewed by a lawyer.

Insurance company denied life insurance claim? Many people purchase life insurance policies to provide security and support for loved ones. Unlike most insurance policies, with life insurance the insurance company may perform underwriting when the claim is made rather than at the time of issuing the policy. As such, even though the life insurance policy may have been issued and all premiums paid, the life insurance company may perform a thorough review of the application forms and medical records of the deceased. Often, the insurance company will unjustifiably delay or deny paying life insurance proceeds.
If a life insurance company has denied or delayed processing your claim, you should immediately contact a Toronto life insurance lawyer for an opinion. There are deadlines within which to bring claims against insurance companies. If it has already been several months and the insurance company keeps telling you that they are still investigating, then it is time to speak with a Toronto insurance lawyer. Some unscrupulous insurance companies will seek to drag out the process and lead you on for the sole reason of strengthening their denial, while prejudicing your rights.
Let an experienced Ontario life insurance lawyer review the life insurance policy and provide you with an opinion about your rights. There are deadlines in insurance law and, as such, the wait-and-see approach can be detrimental to your rights. If an insurance company is leading you on, delaying or denying your insurance claim, contact Iacobelli Law Firm for a FREE CONSULTATION.
