Lincoln National (Lincoln Financial Group) is a Fortune 250 insurance company based in Radnor, Pennsylvania, and they’ve recently bought out Liberty Mutual Insurance. Similar to other major insurance carriers, Lincoln National is not in the business of willingly paying out full and fair settlements. Sadly, the company can make more money by rejecting or underpaying claims. To get the full benefits you deserve, you may need to take legal action.

Review the Denial Letter
If Lincoln National has decided to deny your insurance claim, then the company owes you a clear and concise explanation of its reasoning. Insurance claim denials should not be too convoluted to understand. Still, while Lincoln National must send you a written denial letter, such a letter can often be extremely confusing. Many denial letters include vague industry lingo that is difficult to understand. You should get this letter to an experienced California Lincoln National insurance denial lawyer. Your lawyer will be able to determine what you need to do next.
Gather Additional Evidence
In some cases, Lincoln National denies insurance claims for bad faith reasons. The application for benefits may have been perfect, yet the company still rejects the claim. In bad faith insurance cases, a lawsuit may need to be filed. In many other cases, the claimant will be required to produce additional evidence to address Lincoln National’s stated reasoning for the denial. It is crucial that you put together this evidence as soon as possible.
Take Action: File an Appeal
The exact path that your insurance appeal with take will depend on the specific nature of your case. For example, the appeals procedure is often different in a long term disability case than it is in a life insurance case. To get the best results, you should be represented by an experienced Northern California insurance claim denial lawyer.
