Dealing with the loss of a loved one is difficult. Being involved in an unexpected dispute with the insurance company over life insurance or accidental death benefits can only make things worse.
Kevin Zietz works with clients whose insurance companies deny claims with any number of reasons, including policy lapses, rescinding the policy or accusations of fraud. Insurers do everything possible to find exceptions and exclusions to justify denying claims. Insurers do not have your best interests in mind.
The Law Offices of Kevin M. Zietz puts the best interests of clients above all else. Los Angeles life insurance claims attorney Kevin Zietz has dedicated his legal career, more than 15 years, to helping people fight back against abusive insurance companies. His goal is to be a powerful advocate for his clients and level the playing field against insurers.
He represents California clients with a variety of insurance claim matters, including:
- Initial benefit applications
- Claims submission
- Preparing appeals after a denial
- Appealing terminated benefits
- Litigating issues in federal court
Effective Appeals Representation
When life insurance benefits have been terminated or denied altogether, you can file an appeal with the insurance company. The process depends on what type of policy you have. If it is a group employer-provided policy, ERISA (the Employee Retirement Income Security Act) governs the claim. Unfortunately, ERISA provides only a few options for recovery and damages.
Other insurance policies are purchased independently and do not fall under ERISA. When insurers unreasonably deny these claims, there are far more options for seeking recovery, including the benefits you contracted for, damages for financial hardship and emotional distress, and punitive damages.
The key is to contact Kevin Zietz as soon as possible; if possible, immediately upon receiving a letter of denial from your insurer. You do not have to deal with your insurer alone. Kevin Zietz has the skills and experience necessary to help you obtain the best results possible.
