Does Tucker & Ludin handle Life Insurance Claims?

Yes. We handle private policy life insurance claims and employer benefit (ERISA) life insurance claims.


Life insurance payments seem obvious. Why would I need an attorney?

The most common problem in life insurance cases is related to beneficiary designations. Often a form is not completed properly and the death benefit could go to different people. Sometimes, there was coercion involved in getting the person to change their beneficiary before they died.


Does Tucker & Ludin handle Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) claims?

Yes. Our attorneys have a wide range of experience handling AD&D claims, particularly where the insurer claims that the death involved was not accidental.


Can Tucker & Ludin challenge an AD&D benefit denial when the insurance company claims the death was not an accident?

Yes. Our attorneys have handled many cases where insurers deny Accidental Death benefits on that basis.
