A $50,000 Liberty Mutual life insurance claim was denied due a mistake on the application, however, our lawyers were able to get our client the money within a short period of time.
Many beneficiaries may feel helpless when their life insurance claims get denied or delayed by big and powerful insurance companies. When a family member passes away, the grief of the loss of a love done is coupled with the frustration and stress related to dealing with wrongful denial and delay of claims. It is important to remember that beneficiaries are not without recourse and may dispute their life insurance claim denials and delays.
If a life insurance company has failed to promptly issue payment of your life insurance proceeds, you need to consult with a life insurance attorney who can represent your best interests in this fight.
Generally, life insurance companies must investigate and pay a claim within a reasonable period of time of the claim being filed or in accordance with the life insurance policy terms. Oftentimes, however, they deny or delay claims or offer a reduced settlement amount or do anything in their power to avoid paying the full claim amount.
Our life insurance attorneys encourage clients not to accept settlement offers without the advice of an experienced life insurance attorney.
Your life insurance claim may be delayed or denied for many reasons, including:
- Self-Inflicted Injuries
- Death Within Contestable Period

- Autopsy Report Not Received
- Suspicious Cause of Death
- Review of Medical
- Suspicious Death
Our life insurance lawyers are familiar with the reasons life insurance companies use to delay your life insurance claim. If your life insurance claim is being wrongfully delayed, we will contact the insurance company to demand immediate payment of your claim, including all interest accumulated during the duration of the delay.
