Policy Lapse Denied Life Insurance Claims

Many beneficiaries of life insurance policies face the problem of policy lapse, which is often used by insurance companies as a reason to deny a claim. However, not all policy lapses are valid or justified. Some insurance companies wrongfully lapse policies to avoid paying benefits. Our lawyers specialize in life insurance lapse cases and help beneficiaries get their rightful compensation.

Policyowners and their beneficiaries have certain rights and protections under the life insurance laws for lapsed policies. The insurer has to follow the law when determining if a policy was valid or not at the time of death. If the insurer violated the law, the beneficiaries may still receive the payout even if the policy seemed to have lapsed. To increase your chances of getting your benefits, you should consult with a life insurance lapse lawyer who has experience in this field.

No law firm is better than ours at resolving denied life insurance claims due to lapse.
