Disability Claims.

Disability lawsuits present unique legal tests, and engage different legal principles than personal injury cases. If you have been denied benefits despite the fact that you are unable to work, it is important to understand the legal principles that apply and how they affect you. It is important to speak with a lawyer who understands disability law.

Your disability insurance company may tell you that you are no longer entitled to receive a benefit – this does not necessarily make it so. At Fishman Lawyers we make sure that the disability insurance company abides by its duty to act in good faith towards you or your loved one, by ensuring that it pays every claim based not upon what the insurance company says you are entitled to receive, but based on what the law says you are entitled to receive.

Life Insurance Claims.

Life Insurance is a contract between an insured person and an insurance company, where the company promises to pay a designated beneficiary a sum of money in exchange for a premium, upon the death of the insured person. The contract or policy will set out several definitions and terms. Contractual definitions and terms are almost always open to interpretation.

When life insurance companies deny claims it is usually involves allegations of misrepresentation, non-payment of premiums, and exclusion clauses.

At Fishman Lawyers we have successfully resolved denied life insurance claims by bringing forth the medical and other evidence needed to resolve disputes over life insurance denials.

Even in circumstances where the insurance company permits you to appeal the decision, it is still important to seek legal advice promptly to know which time limits apply in your particular circumstances. If an insurance company has wrongfully denied a life insurance claim there may have no alternative but to take legal action  before the time limits expire.
