Holding Insurers Accountable to the Contracts They Have Signed
Any time someone dies within a few years of taking out a substantial life insurance policy, the insurance company is going to be suspicious. This is understandable. However, that does not mean the company can deny a claim that it is required to pay under the insurance contract.
Almost all life insurance contracts contain a non-contestability clause specifying that the insurance company cannot rescind the policy or contest a claim after the first two years.
Unfortunately, insurance companies often try to get around non-contestability by delaying the effective date of the policy so they can claim that the application was fraudulent, that the applicant failed to disclose something or that the applicant died from a pre-existing condition.
This approach is known as post-claims underwriting, and it is an unethical practice that is very often in breach of the insurance contract. Our attorneys are prepared to take your insurance company to court, if necessary, to stop them from canceling your policy or denying your claim.
