An insurance policy is, in every sense of the term, a contract. When an insurance company fails to uphold its end of the agreement by denying your claim without reason, you have a contract dispute. However, before you take your case to court, you have the option to appeal and negotiate a fair settlement with the insurer. At Kantor & Kantor LLP, we represent insureds in appeals before they go to litigation. If negotiations fail, we are prepared to take your case to litigation. Regardless of the situation, our experienced insurance appeals attorneys are prepared to offer you and your family unwavering advocacy during this stressful time in your life.
The California insurance appeals process is somewhat simple, but it is rarely ever easy. Under California law, insurers are required to provide policyholders with a written reason for a claim denial. They must then give insureds up to 30 days to file an appeal.
Though California’s laws somewhat favor consumers in this regard, appeals are rarely successful. This is because the majority of appeals are handled by the person who denied the claim in the first place. To provide policyholders with a fairer chance at obtaining a successful outcome, they have the opportunity to take their case to the state. If you decide to do this, you must be prepared to make your case before an impartial board.
At Kantor & Kantor LLP, we assign two attorneys to every case, regardless of whether it is at the appeals stage or the litigation stage. We do this for three reasons:
Our team members at Kantor & Kantor LLP like to think of ourselves as family. When we agree to work with a client, we are not just taking on another case—we are inviting that person to join our family.
We care about our clients and their families, which is why we strive to achieve the best possible outcome on their behalves. We work closely with each party and remain actively involved in their lives throughout the duration of their case. We tirelessly pursue settlements or judgments that will allow them to comfortably see to their immediate and future needs.
When you contract with an insurance company, you expect your insurer to treat your claim fairly and to pay out your benefits when you need them. Unfortunately, insurance is a business, and as such, insurers strive to minimize loss as much as possible. One way in which they do that is by denying valid claims. If your insurer recently denied you benefits—whether they were for health, life insurance, or disability—reach out to the insurance appeals lawyers at Kantor & Kantor LLP. We are prepared to go to bat for you and tirelessly pursue the outcome you deserve. Contact our firm online or by phone today.
