Your Trusted Life Insurance Lawyers

Life insurance, or terminal illness insurance, is designed to provide peace of mind for family and friends in the event of a loved one’s untimely death. However, life insurance cover comes in many different forms. Each policy includes varying degrees of cover with terms and conditions that specify exclusions based on different circumstances. In some cases, insurers make it difficult to claim these entitlements. Life insurance lawyers can guide families through the claims and legal process, assisting them to gather evidence and make a life insurance claim successfully.

Most life insurance policies typically cover a range of causes of death, such as illness, death from natural causes, or accidents. However, some insurance policies may contain exclusions for certain types of death. These exclusions often include death by suicide or death resulting from criminal activity.

At the event of the policyholder’s death, life insurance companies invite families to begin the claims process. Once submitted, insurers will assess the validity of the life insurance claim and determine the sum of the payout to be awarded. In some circumstances, more than one claimant may be entitled to the insurance payout.

How Can A Life Insurance Lawyer Help Me?

The life insurance claims process can be particularly distressing for families still grieving. In many cases, immediate funds are required to replace the income of the deceased, and life insurance claims can take time to be finalised. If you are having issues with the claims process, or an insurer is disputing your claim, our skilled life insurance lawyers can help.

The process for seeking life insurance or terminal illness compensation can be complex, and the requirements and procedures may vary depending on your specific insurance policy. Our expert life insurance lawyers can provide valuable assistance to you by providing advice, representation, and support throughout the process.

What Compensation Am I Entitled To?

If you have lost a loved one and are seeking assistance with life insurance claims, our lawyers can help you to make a claim. The claim will typically be based on the insurance level decided on and paid for by the deceased when the policy began – or was last amended.

How We Can Help

Our expert lawyers for life insurance claims can help you by:

After the death of a loved one, when making a life insurance claim, it’s important to notify the insurer as soon as possible. It may take time to gather the documentation required to complete your claim.

If the life insurance claim is accepted, the insurer will typically pay out the policy benefits as a lump sum to the policyholder’s nominated beneficiaries. Before this happens, it’s important to consult a lawyer and financial advisor to understand any potential tax implications of receiving a life insurance payout.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve probably seen a lot of lawyers use the term ‘No Win, No Fee’. Long story short: you only pay us when you achieve a successful outcome. So if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.

Let’s break it down.

  • We start by reviewing your claim in detail and give you a clear assessment of your prospects for success. We’re experts in compensation law, so we can give you an accurate assessment of your claim.
  • Once we’ve established that you should pursue your claim, you can tell us if you want us to proceed as your legal representatives. To formally appoint us as your legal representative, you will enter into a ‘Conditional Costs Agreement’ with us. This is a legal contract that sets out the likely costs of running your claim based on our fees, as well as the rights and responsibilities of you as the client and us as your legal representatives.
  • We’ll explain it clearly and thoroughly, with as little legal speak as possible – we promise you’ll understand it completely.
  • Importantly, this agreement will set out the ‘No Win, No Fee’ arrangement in black and white. This specifies that you will not pay us anything if your claim is not successful. Our ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement also covers you for disbursements, or outlays. These are expenses that we may need to pay to progress your claim, including medical reports, expert witness fees and barristers’ fees.
  • In certain circumstances, you may be required to pay the other party’s legal costs if you are unsuccessful.
  • Remember, your success rests on you providing us with an honest, comprehensive account of all matters relevant to your claim.
