People purchase life insurance policies so that when they die, their loved ones will be taken care of financially. These plans ensure that the policyholder's family members have sustained and consistent monetary support in the face of unexpected tragedy. In the wake of a loved one's death, the last thing you need is to hear that the insurance company denied your life insurance claim.

St. Petersburg Life Insurance Appeal Attorney
Insurance companies deny life insurance claims for several reasons, including:
- Fraud by the insured or beneficiary — The insurer may investigate to determine whether fraud was committed.
- Material misrepresentation on the life insurance application — If the insurer believes that the policyholder was untruthful in any aspect of the application, the claim may be denied. This misrepresentation can occur on the original application or an amendment to the application.
- Lapse of coverage — Insurance companies sometimes claim that the policyholder missed a premium payment, resulting in lapsed coverage.
- Suicide —Most life insurance policies have a clause that states benefits will be limited or not paid out if the policyholder committed suicide.
