Los Angeles, CA – Dec 18, 2020 – Life insurance is an investment in an individual’s future that can provide for final expenses or a child’s college education. Most insurance policies are paid with no problem, but a variety of situations can arise that will delay or prevent the money from being dispersed. Joseph Fogel, lead trial partner at Life Insurance Lawyer NOW, specializes in resolving insurance-related issues for individuals and offers free consultations.
“My law firm helps people with life insurance interpleaders, where there are different people claiming the life insurance benefits,” said Fogel. “We also help with life insurance claims that are not paid, especially if the policy was bought less than two years before the person passed away.”
One of the most common situations are beneficiary disputes that occur when an individual doesn’t keep their policy updated to reflect changing life circumstances. Children, a second spouse, or other beneficiaries may discover the money they were depending on is being claimed by someone else. The problem can be compounded by state laws and statutes.
Life insurance companies can cause delays for any number of reasons or even deny the claim and refuse to disburse the funds. They may also request medical records or other documents. It’s part of a strategy designed to burden beneficiaries with paperwork, intimidate, and make them give up. Life Insurance Lawyer NOW has extensive experience in litigating denials ranging from unpaid premiums and policy exclusions to misrepresentations and death in a foreign country.
The firm works with clients encountering deliberate delays by insurance companies and fights for individuals that were sold policies in bad faith. Life Insurance Lawyer NOW also represents individuals in interpleader cases in which insurance companies sue beneficiaries and rely on the courts to decide who the beneficiary should be.
When a loved one dies, the last thing they should worry about is getting the funds for final expenses and other contingencies. Joseph Fogel is the Life Insurance Lawyer NOW that represents individuals in their time of need. Whether insurance companies are claiming false or misleading information was given or is trying to rescind a policy, the firm offers free consultations and is there to represent and support clients every step of the way.
