Life Insurance and Accidental Death & Dismemberment

The protection of you and your family through the purchase of life insurance is protection that none of us ever want to experience a problem with. When those problems arise, however, Schwartz Law is there to protect you. Some of the issues where Schwartz Law has successfully helped clients include:

Claims by the insurance company that the insurance policy has lapsed for nonpayment of premium.

Claims by the insurance company that the insurance policy is contestable, meaning that the insurance company can seek to rescind the policy based upon misrepresentations that they claim are contained in the application for the insurance

Sales practices claims, whereby you believe the insurance company, its agent, or the brokers that sold you the insurance misrepresented what they were selling you, including the financial components of the policy, the cost of the insurance, and the manner in which premiums would be charged

Beneficiary disputes, where more than one person claims that they are entitled to the life insurance proceeds.
