The death of a loved one is distressing and painful. If you expect that person to give you and your family financial support, the financial well-being of those left behind is in jeopardy. This is why there is life insurance. Buying life insurance is a decision made to try to shield the beneficiaries from financial crippling if the worst happens. One expects the insurance company to pay the agreed-upon death benefit in exchange for all the years and months of premium payments.

Additionally, the family does not need to worry about the threat of losing their house or not being able to send their children to college because of their anguish and pain. It is not simply families who get affected. Businesses frequently buy life insurance policies to safeguard themselves financially in the case of the death of a key employee, partner, or executive.

However, if insurance companies believe they can get away with it, they refuse to pay the death benefit, and they can be rather inventive in their efforts. If this occurs, remember that you do not have to battle for the life insurance benefits you need and deserve on your own.

Ehline Law Firm’s wrongful death attorneys have fought every strategy these insurance companies use. You have a much higher chance of a successful life insurance claim with the services of an Ehline attorney in Los Angeles.

How an Insurance Company Tries to Deny a Claim for Your Loved One

The devastated family members or crippled business may confront one or more of the following gimmicks based on the scenario and the insurance company in question:

  • The death does not qualify – Firms may argue that the policyholder’s death was not covered.
  • Retroactive cancellation – The insurance company may argue that the life insurance policy got canceled, lapsed, or was not paid for prior to the death, which balances it.
  • Misrepresentation – The firm claims that the policyholder lied in the agreement about essential facts about themself, voiding the policy.

This is not a comprehensive list. Since denying claims equals more money in their pockets, insurance firms are pretty resourceful.

Competing Claims

Other issues with life insurance may develop in addition to denied claims. A competing-claims conflict might arise between a newly added beneficiary and the claimant or between a beneficiary removed from the insurance but continues to seek a wrongful death claim. These scenarios can become challenging whether they involve an ex-spouse, a child, a new spouse, a stepchild, a friend, or a business partner.

Identifying the correct recipient and successfully demonstrating their claim may become difficult, painful, and lonely. Ehline Law Firm in Los Angeles handles competing claim issues and fights for the advantages our clients deserve and need.

What Are Incontestability Clauses in Los Angeles?

Many states would have safeguards to ensure that life insurance payouts get paid, even if the insured made false assertions on the policy application. The goal is to ensure that an insurance company may have to handle any queries or issues while the insured is still alive.

Allowing an insurance firm to collect premiums for years only to undertake a more extensive inquiry after the death of a loved one and refuse to pay the family members is not fair. These clauses are commonly referred to as “incontestability clauses.” In essence, such clauses state that an insurance provider cannot fight a life insurance policy for any reason, including fraud, after a set time, usually two years, in Los Angeles, California.

How Our Wrongful Death Attorney Fights for Your Case

To begin, an Ehline insurance recovery attorney offers you a free consultation to evaluate your case. We charge a contingency fee, meaning we only get paid if you receive your settlement. When we say free, we mean it: we do not charge you for things like expert witnesses or investigations. When your insurance company learns you have engaged us, they may be furious. We have a well-deserved reputation for going to any length for our clients, including going to trial if necessary. We value our attorney-client relationship, meaning you can rest assured knowing that we conduct a case review and your policy limits thoroughly to ensure we act in your best interests.

Our specialists and investigators thoroughly review the specifics, conditions, and tiny prints of your case and insurance contract. Flimsy reasons and unjustified death cases fade away, and your chances of receiving assistance improve dramatically.


How Long Does it Take to Receive Life Insurance Payments?

The money is normally sent out within 30 days of the insurance firm getting the death certificate. If they have not sent the payout by then, it is usually because they’re still investigating the death. This could be due to valid concerns or seeking a technicality to justify rejecting the wrongful death claim.
