Life and Disability Insurance Lawyer

If an insurer denies or terminates a valid claim for disability benefits, refuses to pay death benefits to a family that has suffered a loss, or denies a valid claim for critical illness benefits, the insured person or their loved ones face a monumental struggle – a struggle against an adversary of vast financial means and a mind-boggling internal bureaucracy.

Once an insurer has made a decision, even a wrong one, it takes an incredible effort to convince it to change that decision.

Is this your struggle? Stop struggling on your own.

We will fight the insurer to get the maximum settlement you deserve. If a fair settlement is not possible, we are fully prepared to go to trial for you.

We have successfully prosecuted denied insurance claims against Manulife, Great-West Life, Canada Life, London Life, Sun Life, RBC Life, Empire Life, SSQ Life, Desjardins, Industrial Alliance, and other insurance companies.

We understand that handling an insurance denial lawsuit means more than winning. It means taking care of what’s most important – you and your loved ones. Please contact us today if you, or a loved one, have been denied insurance benefits. Turn our experience to your advantage, and ensure you receive the benefits you are entitled to – as quickly as possible.

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.

We offer contingency fees, whenever possible.

Jan A. Fishman’s commitment to you:

If you retain me, I will be YOUR lawyer. You will have me on your side every step of the way.  I will personally handle every aspect of your case, from start to finish. You will not be passed off to a junior associate, paralegal or law clerk.  Your phone calls and emails will be promptly answered, as will your questions.  You will be kept well informed during every step of the process. I don’t run a mill and I don’t do this work to make a fast profit.  That means you will NEVER be pressured by me to accept an insurance company “low-ball” settlement of your claim.  I don’t spend a fortune on advertising, but I’ll put my success rate up against all the other lawyers out there who do.  There are bigger firms that you can use.  But you won’t find a better lawyer or one who will give your case the personal attention that I will.

This is my commitment to you.

Our Focus is Denied Insurance Claims. Period.
