Life Insurance Lapse Attorneys

Consumers buy life insurance to protect their families and provide for loved ones after they pass. But when insurance companies unreasonably cause life insurance policies to lapse, it can ruin the plans and lives of those involved.

To protect consumers, California has enacted strict laws that require life insurance companies, such as Genworth, Prudential, New York Life, Met Life and others, to notify insureds about potential lapse, and to give them the opportunity to designate a another person to receive a copy of the notices.

In some cases, however, insurance companies ignore these laws, and unreasonably terminate coverage for non-payment of premiums, then refuse to pay benefits owed under the policy.
