Life Insurance Disputes Attorney

As our San Francisco, CA life insurance disputes lawyer knows from experience, life insurance disputes arise more commonly than one might think. They are also far more complex legally than one might think.

Disputes over life insurance proceeds often arise when a surviving spouse and spouse by a former marriage make conflicting claims to the same policy benefit. Additionally, surviving children and a spouse who is not the parent of these children may all claim to be the proper beneficiary under the life insurance policy.

Resolution of the issue of who is the proper beneficiary may depend on whether the policy is a “term life” or “whole life” policy. A divorce settlement may also be relevant to determining the proper beneficiary or beneficiaries and the extent of their entitlement to the life insurance benefit.

At the Law Offices of Bennett M. Cohen P.C., we evaluate whether you are a proper beneficiary and the amount to which you are legally entitled. Our San Francisco life insurance disputes lawyer aggressively and skillfully acts on your behalf to recover the life insurance benefit you deserve.
