While no one likes to think about accidental death Chicago attorney Michael Bartolic is a lawyer who can handle the ins and outs of receiving benefit claims in the event that you lose a family member to a sudden, accidental death. When it comes to filing claims under ERISA regulations for accidental death Chicago attorney Bartolic is uniquely experienced. He can also handle accidental death claims for non-ERISA insurance policies as well. In many cases there can be a combination of ERISA and non-ERISA insurance claims and it’s best to hire an attorney that can work on both at the same time.
It’s not fair, but many insurance companies try to deny claims based on little known exclusions in the policies. Often, they try to say that the death was due to the fault of another or that the act was voluntary.
In these cases, the only way to get the claim you deserve is to hire a competent attorney who understands the laws and regulations. An important aspect of ERISA law is that it limits your ability to present evidence for your claim. Regardless, an ERISA lawyer with the right experience can help.
