Austin Accidental Death Claims Attorney

Helping People in and around Austin, Texas with Pursuing a Claim for Accidental Death Benefits

The primary purpose of obtaining insurance coverage for accidental death is to ensure that loved ones and family members are protected in the event the insured passes away accidentally and unexpectedly. In some instances, individuals receive this insurance coverage through an employer-sponsored plan pursuant to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).

When the insured passes away as a result of accidental death, the named beneficiary under the policy may make a claim for benefits. In some instances, however, insurance companies deny these benefits claims for one reason or another. 

If an insurance company has denied your claim for accidental death benefits, you may be eligible to take legal action. The experienced Austin accidental death claims attorneys at the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara could assist you with challenging an insurance company’s denial of your claim.

What Qualifies as an Accidental Death?

An accidental death insurance policy will set forth the types of circumstances that qualify as an accidental death under the insurance policy. When it comes to a claimed accidental death, many insurance companies are skeptical and may try to deny coverage. Insurance companies will also thoroughly investigate accidental death claims. An insurance claim for accidental death could result from any of the following:

  • Slip and falls
  • Motor vehicle collisions
  • Drowning accidents
  • Boating accidents

Our number-one goal is getting you and your family back to financial security as soon as possible.

Why Might the Insurance Company Deny the Claim?

Insurance companies, like any business, are interested in making money first and foremost. They make money by charging their customers premiums that are paid on a regular basis. When the insurance company has to pay on a claim for accidental death benefits – or any other insurance claim – the insurance company, in effect, is losing money. Consequently, insurance companies will investigate claims thoroughly and look for anything that they can in order to deny a claim. 

In the case of accidental death, the insurance company might conclude that the insured’s death was excluded from coverage under the policy, such as where the insured committed some kind of self-inflicted injury (or committed suicide), leading to the insured’s untimely death. 

Insurance companies will often use their own experts to investigate a claim, such as when there is a suspected preexisting medical condition. Insurance companies sometimes use their own experts and health care providers in hopes that these “experts” will reach a conclusion that supports a claim denial. When that happens, you might have a legal basis for challenging the denial of your claim.
