Denied Accidental Death Claims

Accidental Overdose

Have you or one of your loved ones been denied an accidental death claim? It is common practice for insurance companies to wrongfully deny payment under Accidental Death and Life Insurance Policies. Often, insurance companies will deny Accidental Death and Life Insurance claims for several reasons, some of which include disease or sickness exclusions, prescription drug usage, illegal drug usage, intoxication, accidental death not independent from other causes, participation in a crime, or suicide.

One of the most common reasons for an insurance company to deny payment under an Accidental Death policy is denial due to an illness that the insurance company claims caused or contributed to death, even when it is clear the death was due to accidental means.

There is a very limited window of time to fight the insurance company’s denial, in some cases as little as 60 days. If an insurance company has denied payment of your accidental death or life insurance claim, please contact our office immediately.
