Life Insurance Denials

When a loved one dies, a life insurance policy can provide much-needed financial support for those left behind. When the insurance company denies coverage, it can compound the tragedy of the loss.

When a life insurance policyholder pays premiums to the insurance company, the policyholder reasonably believes that the insurance company will deliver on its promise to pay the death benefit when due. Sometimes, however, life insurance companies handle claims in an unfair or incorrect manner. When that happens, a beneficiary has a right to file a lawsuit to challenge the denial.

As a New Jersey and New York life insurance attorney, Eric Dinnocenzo has vast experience representing policyholders and beneficiaries against life insurance companies. In fact, he is one of a few lawyers who has developed a special interest in representing clients in life insurance cases. He has litigated life insurance denial cases in both New Jersey and New York state and federal courts against major national insurance companies and has obtained successful results for his clients. He has also published in the field of life insurance law.

In order to prevail against life insurance companies, an attorney must understand application and underwriting procedures, claims handling practices, and the internal hierarchy of insurance companies. Through his experience in this area of law, Eric Dinnocenzo has developed an in-depth knowledge of these matters that has proven highly effective in overturning life insurance denials.
