The death of a family member or relative is traumatic and difficult. If that individual was relied upon to provide financially, the economic survival of those left behind is in danger.
That’s why life insurance exists. Buying a life insurance policy is a decision to defend the beneficiaries from financial ruin if the worst should occur. The family expects that the insurer will pay the agreed-upon benefit in exchange for the months and years of paying the premiums. And the family trusts that their pain and trauma won’t be added on to by the chance of losing their house or not being able to send their kids to college.
Life insurance is not just for families. Life insurance policies are also commonly utilized by businesses to defend themselves monetarily in the event of the death of a partner, executive, or worker.
But insurance companies will not pay the death benefit if they think they can get away with it. And they can be extremely creative in trying to do so. If that occurs, understand that you don’t have to fight alone for the benefits you need and deserve. Our firm has fought every tactic these companies attempt. With the help of our Chicago life insurance claim lawyer, you’ll have a much better chance of a successful outcome.
Depending on the case and the company in question, the family or business may encounter one or more of the following insurance ploys:
This is not an exhaustive list. Insurance companies are very creative because denying claims means more cash stays in their pocket.
Along with denied claims, other issues can arise with life insurance. Oftentimes, there can be a competing-claims dispute between a newly added beneficiary and the claimant or a beneficiary who has been taken off of the policy and still seeks a claim. Whether an ex-spouse, new spouse, a kid, stepchild, acquaintance, or business partner, these circumstances can be difficult. Choosing the rightful beneficiary and establishing their claim successfully can be costly, hard, and lonely. Our firm fights to get our clients the benefits they deserve and need.
