Life Insurance Claims Denial Law Firm

New York, New Jersey & Massachusetts

Welcome to our life insurance litigation website. We have created this website as a resource for people who have been denied payment on a life insurance policy after a loved one has passed away.

Many people apply for, and obtain, life insurance policies as a way to help their loved ones after they pass away. A life insurance policy can provide surviving beneficiaries with much needed financial support after a family member dies.

Unfortunately, when your loved one dies, some life insurance companies look for an excuse to deny the claim. Insurance companies are big businesses and they want to minimize their expenses. In some cases, the insurance company may deny a life insurance claim based on an alleged misstatement in the application.

In New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts,  the insurance companies have two years to “look back” at the application to find what the insurance company claims is a material misrepresentation in the application as the basis for denying the claim. This look back period is called the contestability period. They can even deny the life insurance claim when the misstatement had nothing to do with the applicant’s death.
