Life, Health, and Disability
Claims against life, health and disability carriers continue to increase in frequency. Such insurers are also constantly facing statutory and regulatory changes that complicate their litigation exposures. Our firm has extensive experience in evaluating coverage and defending lawsuits arising out of life, health, accidental death, and disability claims. We have handled some of the leading class-action lawsuits arising out of various financial products including vanished premium allegations and agent misconduct claims. We have handled a significant number of cases involving rescissions of both life and health claims, beneficiary contests, and ERISA pre-emption issues.
One of the highest compliments of our expertise in this area is the fact that several of our lawyers are regularly retained as expert witnesses by other lawyers and other carriers when they find themselves in trouble. Founding partners Christopher Martin and David Disiere are regularly retained for their expertise regarding the proper handling of claims under life, health and disability policies.
