Employee Benefit Claims

Guynn & Waddell, P.C., has extensive litigation experience handling employee benefit claims for claimants, for employers and for insurance companies. For claimants, the firm has assisted employees to obtain health insurance, disability insurance and life insurance benefits under employee benefit plans. These cases involve an administrative claims appeals process that is often followed by litigation in the Federal Courts.

The firm has additionally represented employers and benefit insurance carriers, primarily in the defense of life insurance benefit claims. These cases typically involve a rescission of the policy on grounds of material misrepresentation in the application, a coverage dispute over the existence of coverage, a coverage dispute over the amount of life insurance benefits payable or a beneficiary dispute.
