Our Attorneys take on the big insurance companies and win
An insurance denial might seem like the end of the line for your claim, but the insurance company doesn’t always get the last word. The average person might not know there is anything they can do once a claim has been denied, and even the average lawyer doesn’t really know what can be done in these situations. Insurance companies make their denials sound very official and final and based on a thorough investigation and the language of your policy. But we know that insurance companies don’t always get the facts right, even when they are interpreting their own policy language. You don’t have to be intimidated by the insurance giants and the mountains of documents they hide behind. We know California insurance law, and we have slain those giants time after time. Simply put, you are entitled to the benefits in your policy. Our insurance lawyers stand up for Californians who are told by their insurer that they can’t get the test, drug or treatment they need.
