Life Insurance Company Won't Pay Claim

Personal Injury Attorneys

Sometimes life insurance claims for a loved one who has passed are denied. HGSK is here to explain why the claim might be denied and what you can do about it.

The death of a loved one is already challenging. Let us deal with the insurance company so you can focus on their memory instead.”

— James C. Haggerty

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, October 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — No one ever reads the fine print until it’s too late. In this case, it can really save you the headache when you first purchase your life insurance policy, but if you’re already dealing with a denied claim, our bad faith insurance attorneys might be able to help.

There are 4 common reasons for a life insurance company to deny your claim:

1. Policy Delinquency – In this case, the policyholder may have failed to pay premiums on time which has caused the policy to lapse. It may seem like a final decision, but it is possible that the insurance company is the one responsible, so don’t just take their word for it.

2. Material Misrepresentation – This would have occurred on the original application for the life insurance policy. If the policyholder didn’t answer questions regarding medical history, smoking, or weight accurately, the insurance company can deny the claim. Other common examples of misrepresentation include lying about your income, failure to mention treatments for minor ailments, or non-disclosure of another life insurance policy.

3. Contestable Circumstances – When death falls outside the scope of the life insurance policy, it’s considered a contestable circumstance to protect the insurance company from fraud. At the same time, death is unpredictable. In Pennsylvania, the contestability timeframe is 2 years from the policy’s effective date meaning that if the policyholder dies within this period, the insurance company has the right to deny the claim. Other contestable circumstances include death by suicide, acts of war, dangerous hobbies such as mountain climbing, or health perils such as HIV.

4. Documentation Failure – The beneficiaries or family members of the policyholder have neglected to provide the necessary documentation in order to receive the life insurance benefit. In order to start the process, insurers need at least the death certificate to move forward.

What Should You Do If Your Claim Is Denied

If you have received the initial denial letter from the insurance company, the first step is to understand why you are being denied. If you find that the letter is lacking in details, contact the insurance company to request additional information around the objections to payment.

If you have evidence to the contrary to their objection, you can file an appeal with the insurance company. At this point, getting help from legal representation will help you focus on grieving while the legal aspect is handled. You can get help from the state’s department of insurance or attorney general, or an insurance appeal specialist. Alternatively, you can hire a bad faith insurance attorney to handle your case. In either situation, you need to be comfortable with who you will work with to receive the death benefit.

If you've been denied a death benefit for your loved one, you need the assistance of an experienced bad faith insurance lawyer. At Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer & Kupersmith, P.C, we will help you navigate through the legal process and fight for the benefits that you deserve.

Types of Cases that Fall Under Personal Injury Law

Personal Injury Attorneys

There are several different types of personal injury cases, and the Pennsylvania Personal Injury Attorneys at HGSK will outline them here for you.

The types of cases included under personal injury can vary widely, but it’s our job to educate and help our clients know their rights so they receive the compensation they deserve.”

— James C. Haggerty

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, October 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Throughout our lives, most of us have experienced our fair share of scratches, cuts, bruises, and other types of injuries. While some of them are due to no fault of our own, the injury could be a result of faulty products or negligence of ownership whether it’s a dog bite or a vehicular accident. When you are injured due to the negligence of others, these types of injuries are considered a personal injury.

Accidents happen, but if you can prove the accident and injury resulted in someone’s negligence, you may have a potential personal injury case. With more than 30 million people being injured in the United States in just a single year, most of which require some sort of medical treatment if not hospitalization, these types of cases are becoming more common with little known about how to initiate their claim.

The types of cases included under the personal injury umbrella are lengthy, but we will cover the most common types so that you are aware in case you or a loved one experiences this type of injury.

Car, Truck & Motorcycle Accidents

According to the CDC, about 3 million people are non-fatally injured in road accidents each year in the United States, costing more than $75 billion in medical care costs just in 2017. Despite the safety precautions that have been implemented, road accidents are still unavoidable, because many drivers are too distracted by other outside factors. Motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists are affected by these distractions, which can sometimes be fatal. Most of the time, these accidents are caused by someone’s carelessness and negligence in operating the vehicle safely.

When driving, we are often consumed by our own hectic schedule, mood, and stubbornness, and this often leads to errors in judgment. While a fender bender isn’t a big deal, more severe accidents can leave victims disabled physically, mentally, and, in extreme cases, resulting in death. Compensation is mostly awarded to those affected, and it’s the guilty party’s responsibility to cover all the damages incurred.

Medical Malpractice

You go to your doctor with the intent of receiving proper treatment for an illness, but unfortunately, there are times when medical providers are negligent and make errors that could have been avoided. These errors can range from an incorrect diagnosis, wrong medicine prescribed, mistakes during surgery or childbirth, delay in treatment, and many others.

The results of these mistakes are usually severe physical incapabilities which in some cases, can last for a lifetime. As a result, these individuals are victimized by these mistakes made by the doctor and have no choice but to exercise their rights by hiring a medical malpractice lawyer.

Crime and Abuse Injuries

At times, we unknowingly become a part of a situation that we never expected such as a robbery, sexual assault, or abuse from a trusted provider. If you have experienced any of these types of crimes, you can pursue a personal injury case. Child and elder abuse also fall under personal injury laws.

Premises Liability

In this case, you or a loved one has been injured on someone else’s property or land due to a dangerous or defective condition. These accidents can happen on commercial property such as retail stores, as well as residential property including your neighbor’s home or swimming pool. A range of defective or dangerous conditions can lead to slips, trips, falls, dog bites, among others. It is important for you to document and report the accident, including the dangerous or defective condition that caused the accident, as soon as you can so that a personal injury attorney can help you protect your rights throughout the legal process.

Products Liability

Defective products can pose a variety of risks to our health. When you think about it, it’s rather ironic when you consider the number of 'safe' products available on the market today. Some commonly harmful products include prescription drugs, food, consumer products, children’s toys and furniture, defective vehicle parts or medical device, and toxic materials and chemicals. Though the resulting effects from these products can be mild for many individuals, it can severely affect others. In these cases, the responsible parties can be individuals, businesses, or government agencies who created, designed, or manufactured the defective product.

If you've been a victim of any of these types of personal injury accidents, you need the assistance of an experienced personal injury lawyer. At Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer & Kupersmith, P.C, we will help you navigate through the legal process and fight for the compensation that you deserve. Contact our dedicated legal team at (267) 350-6600 to find out more information about our legal services and how we can help.

Parents Group Exposes Marijuana and Domestic Violence Link–Urges Focus on Drugs During Domestic Violence Month


A New Educational Report by PopPot.org


PopPot Official Logo

Domestic violence is linked most of the time to substance abuse, including marijuana, says a nonprofit which educates parents about cannabis risks and harms.

The legalization of marijuana will only increase domestic violence in the US, just as it appears to be increasing the rate of deaths from child abuse and neglect.”

— Julie Schauer

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, US, October 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A parent education nonprofit issued a report last week on the science and news reports linking marijuana to domestic violence. Parents Opposed to Pot (PopPot) warns that unless we focus on the role substance abuse plays in toxic interpersonal and family relationships, and gender-based violence, we won’t solve these societal problems, nor protect people.

Think Ya Know? Is Marijuana a Risk Factor for Domestic Violence? was published by PopPot after several years of study and accumulating of evidence, including scientific studies, news reports and testimonials. The goal of the report is to engage politicians, social workers and parents by making the case against legalizing and promoting marijuana. PopPot will reach out to nonprofits concerned with violence against women to encourage them to focus on the role of drugs as an underlying force which contributes to domestic violence.

A longitudinal study that tracked more than 9,000 subjects from age 15 to 26 showed that early marijuana users are almost twice as likely to be perpetrators of intimate partner violence (IPV), and more than twice as likely to be victims. This study suggests that politicians and domestic violence activists need to target adolescent marijuana use, because it is likely to increase the likelihood of IPV in young adulthood. Some of the studies PopPot references control for other risk factors for domestic violence, such as alcohol use.

"Most people know the connection between drunken rages and intimate partner violence, but they’re less aware of the risks from marijuana use which affects the brain differently. If we ignore the fact that marijuana use, like other drugs, contributes to domestic violence, we will not make much progress against gender-related violence. The legalization of marijuana can only increase domestic violence in the US, just as it appears to be increasing the rate of deaths from child abuse and neglect," said Julie Schauer, Vice President of Parents Opposed to Pot.

The PopPot report documents the numerous shocking incidents of violence committed against entire families. In one case, a 22-year-old man who had been smoking pot since middle school and had a diagnosed cannabis use disorder, killed not only his parents, but his girlfriend and her parents. In another case, a 19-year-old man drove 1200 miles, from Seattle to Southern California, to gun down his parents and siblings after obsessive use of the drug and playing video games. Links to the news stories about these and other domestic homicides are included in the report. Doctors and scientists throughout the world have connected marijuana to psychosis, and it’s especially during the prodromal stages of psychosis that irrational and paranoid attacks against family members or partners can take place.

The new report is part of the organization’s Think Ya Know? series, which asks and answers important questions about marijuana. Past topics have included: social justice, addiction, marijuana vs. alcohol, and how to know if your child is using. Each report contains relevant statistics, science, and testimonials and activism action steps. A short original video on the subject is also part of the report. Future topics will include marijuana and these issues: driving, mental illness, sports performance, black market, environment.

Parents Opposed to Pot, a 501c3 education nonprofit, based near Washington, D.C., is a go-to source for parent education on cannabis culture, cannabis news and anti-marijuana activism. The nonprofit takes a firm stand against any non-FDA-approved marijuana. Their blog shares many personal testimonies of the damage wrought by marijuana use. PopPot actively tracks news reports of child deaths due to cannabis using adults, news stories of DUID traffic fatalities, and drug-fueled domestic violence. Interested parents can subscribe to their news feed at PopPot.org or follow the group in Facebook @poppotorg, Twitter @poppotgroup and Instagram @everybrainmatters. PopPot aims to burst the myths of the marijuana legalization effort by sharing the truth about the risks and harms of marijuana. Personal story submissions are welcome and can be sent to the editor@poppot.org.

“You’re Right!” The Power of Our Thoughts

Hosted by Dr. Robert Puff

Happiness Podcast

Dr. Robert Puff

#296 Happiness – “Your Right” The Power of Our Thoughts

What we feed our minds and reinforce with our thoughts creates our reality, good or bad. By changing our thoughts, we change our world.

NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA, USA, October 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Did you happen to see the movie A Beautiful Mind? It was released in 2001 to great critical success, and it won four Academy Awards, including best picture.

The main character of the film, played by Russell Crowe, is John Nash, a real-life mathematician who actually won the Nobel prize, as the movie depicts, and also suffered from schizophrenia, as Crowe masterfully interprets.

Schizophrenia is a terrible mental illness that involves hearing and seeing things that aren’t actually there. People with schizophrenia believe that what they are seeing and hearing is real. Typically, these hallucinations are extremely negative ones that center on the person with the illness. Nash, for example, heard voices in his head that told him constantly that he was a failure. Even though the world saw him as a great success, Nash could not believe that this was true because of his schizophrenia. Not even distinguished positions at some of the world’s greatest universities or accolades as high as the Nobel Prize could convince him otherwise. Part of Nash’s hallucination was that he was a failure, even as he was admired throughout the world.

I share all of this to explain the importance of our thoughts. Whether they are positive or negative, our thoughts are powerful. They matter. They help to determine the course of our lives. Even if the whole world disagrees with our thoughts, we are going to follow what we know inside to be true, even if, like John Nash, there is a more enlightened and accurate way to see ourselves. Thoughts have their own energy, and they take off, if we let them.

I once read a study about models. Some of the most beautiful people in the world are models, yet when asked if they consider themselves beautiful, this researched revealed the surprising fact that most did not. Most models felt they were average, and most reported being dissatisfied with some noticeable flaw to their appearance. Gracing the covers of magazines and walking the world’s most elite runways didn’t shake these models’ views that they were ordinary, or even less than ordinary.

It’s possible that you’re reading these examples, and you’re wondering what these words have to do with you. You may be thinking, “I’m not a supermodel or a brilliant mathematician. I’m just an average Joe.” I won’t try to convince you otherwise, because the bottom line is that you’re absolutely right. We are always right, and whatever we think about ourselves is true and correct. When John Nash said, “I’m not good enough,” he was right. When supermodels say, “I’m just not that pretty,” they’re right. Our thoughts control our perception, and there is no sense trying to convince someone with negative thoughts about themselves that they are wrong.

It’s possible that you are someone who takes affirmations very seriously, and you look into your mirror every day and make a positive statement about who you’re going to be or what you’re going to achieve. That’s a great practice, and I encourage it. but I’m not talking about what we are going to be. I’m talking about what we see right now when we look at ourselves in the mirror, whether it is real or metaphorical.

Whatever we are feeding our minds, that’s what we are. Our thoughts are so powerful that they actually do shape our reality. Never mind the fact that they may have nothing to do with what’s true or apparent to others. What we feed our minds is what we believe, and what we believe is our truth.

I have been fortunate to travel around the world and I’ve paid close attention to the people I’ve encountered. The people in different places in the world experience different standards of living from one another and from many of us who live in the United States. Billions of people throughout the world live in comfortable but modest living situations and share their homes with their family and even their extended family.

In Egypt I met a man who was a dentist, and he was excited about the fact that he was going to be married. He was planning to put up a sheet in his apartment to separate a small quarter reserved for him and his future wife from the space occupied by the rest of his extended family. He was very happy at the prospect of his future life. Although he was a dentist, he did not yet make a lot of money, and this modest arrangement was one he could afford and one that brought him thoughts of joy.

Can you imagine a practicing dentist in the United States being satisfied with this arrangement? We have so much more here than many people in the world possess, and yet we don’t feel like it. What we have doesn’t make us happy because we compare ourselves to those who have more. It is our mind at work again, giving us a message that we receive as the truth, despite what the experiences of most others throughout the world would make of our interpretation.

I don’t want to focus on whether our thoughts are right or wrong. Rather, the important takeaway is that our thoughts matter. What we are thinking throughout the day? These thoughts determine the quality of our lives and even the outcomes of our actions.

Perhaps we go through the day recognizing that we don’t have as much as someone else, or that we don’t have enough. Or perhaps we think very differently, and we go through the day feeling gratitude, joy, and thankfulness because we have been so richly blessed. Either thought is true.

If we feel we do not have enough, we suffer. This is true, even if in the world’s eyes we have everything we could possibly need. The root cause of our suffering is not what we have or don’t have, or what we’ve accomplished or not accomplished. At the base of our suffering is our thoughts about our lives

What we are feeding our minds throughout the day will be our reality. This is true even if our reality is madness. What we are feeding our minds matters.

It is important to note that schizophrenia is a genetic disorder that is normally treated with medication. John Nash didn’t like the effects of the medication that he experienced, so ultimately, he decided he’d live his life and train himself to ignore his hallucinations. That was certainly a risky choice, since schizophrenia can be a life-threatening mental illness. But nevertheless, the power of our thoughts is amazing, as Nash’s experience demonstrates.

It’s important to assess what we are feeding ourselves in the form of our thoughts. What is our mental and emotional diet? Is it helpful? Is it beautiful? Is it helping us to have beautiful lives? If not perhaps it’s time to stop paying attention to them, or to change them, or to let them go.

The first thing we have to do is discover what it is that we are thinking about all day long. This involves a straightforward assessment without judgment. We must take a walk past the metaphorical mirror and take a look. Maybe we are saying, “I’m bad, “I’m ugly,” or “I’m stupid.” Do we like these feelings? Probably not. So let’s focus on something else.
John Nash could still see his hallucinations, but he made the remarkable choice to focus on what was real. If our thoughts are hurting us, we should focus on other things. If our thoughts about ourselves are negative, they will only lead to suffering. If we are to live happy lives — and obviously that is our goal, since we are meeting here in the space — we need to take control of the thoughts that hurt us.

The thoughts we experience have to do with all parts of our lives. Maybe we focus our attention on our looks, our success, our health, or even where we live. All of factors things have the ability to cause us to suffer if we allow them to, or if we go on wishing our lives were different.

I live and work in southern California. Public transportation here is not the best, and most of us get around by car. When we get a car, usually we love the feeling. We can get ourselves around from place to place and be productive while doing what we enjoy. But then we get on the road, and we can’t help but notice that others have nicer cars than we do. We might think, “My car is ugly” or “I hate it.” These are the sorts of thoughts we create all day long. But we have a choice in the thoughts we express or believe.

I work in the city of Newport Beach, which is one of the wealthiest communities in the world. No matter the car you have, there is always one that is nicer, and it is our tendency to look at the nicer cars and make a comparison. We do this with so many aspects of our lives. We think we are not good enough or we are not pretty enough, and this can cause us to suffer, but there is really no need to. We can just as easily look at ourselves and our lives and even our vehicles and say, “I am so grateful for what I have.” Our sense of peace increases when we realize the power of our thoughts.

One final step we can take is a hard one, but so worthwhile. I talk about it often, so it may sound familiar, but it is this: Stop paying attention to your thoughts. Instead just be. Instead of shifting your attention to positive things, just live in the now, and really savor each moment and each breath. We don’t need to label everything as good or bad. Rather, we can choose to experience each new breath with wonder as if we are experiencing it for the first time. If we think about the car analogy, perhaps we can stop thinking about whether our car is pretty or nice or fast, and instead we can experience it as if it is brand new and we are driving for the very first time. We can say, “Wow! I have a car!” And we can exhilarate in the feeling of the wind whipping through the windows and the speed with which we get from here to there.

When we look at our car, we can choose to see an experience a car — just a car. It is a mechanical wonder, and having one opens up the doors of many possibilities for our lives. What an amazing thing!

In the very same way, we can look in the mirror and see a person. Wow! What a marvel of creation! What a glorious presence! We don’t need to see ourselves as tall or short, fat or thin, accomplished or otherwise. We can choose to live well, one breath at a time, just as we so beautifully are.

Sometimes the world seems to think highly of us. Other times, it does not. But I’m making the choice just to suck the marrow out of life. When we need to shift our thoughts to something else, we can — or we can just enjoy the presence and stillness of living life one moment at a time.

Thoughts That Bring Joy

Have you found yourself in a spiral of negative thinking that seems to zap the joy from your life? You can change your thinking (though I hope you’ll hang on until the next section, when I offer contrasting, and I believe, better, advice!).

Take up a position in front of your real (not metaphorical) mirror. Look at the dear person there! You know everything this person has experienced. You know how hard they’ve tried. You know what has brought them joy. You know what has hurt them.

You know what jolts this person from sleep in the night, just as you know their happy hammock daydreams. You’ve been through a lot with this person — so why have you been spending so much time thinking about the shape of their nose or the chip in their teeth or the contour of their waistline?

Try to picture this person as a tiny baby — perfectly innocent and unblemished, new to this beautiful world. Can you love this person that way? How about as a toddler? A first-grader? A freshman in high school? At some point, you decided to judge this beautiful creation, but you don’t have to. That infant is still there, barely able to focus. If you stare long enough, you’re certain to see a smile.

Nothing in the mirror matters. Not the color of your eyes or hair. Not your cheekbones. Not some softness under your skin. But if you look closely enough, maybe you can see that innocent baby and recognize that its goodness and potential is still there. Don’t stop looking until you catch a glimpse.

Joy That Brings Joy

All of that stuff I said about looking in the mirror? You don’t need to work that hard. The best thing you can do for yourself takes far less effort than this. I invite you to close your eyes and take a breath deep inside, to the bottom of your belly, and let it out with an audible sigh.

Take another, and hold it for a moment, then sigh it out again. Then take another.

With each breath, focus only on the breath — how it feels in your lungs, in your limbs, in your head. Don’t even think about it; thinking is what got you into this situation. Just feel and be. Your body is a marvelous machine. It is the best car on the lot, because it transports your lovely spirit from here to there. Revel in it. Take it for a spin.

National Experts in Cancer Payment Reform Come Together at 11th Annual Community Oncology Alliance Payer Exchange Summit

Community Oncology Alliance Logo

Community Oncology Alliance Logo

Virtual Meeting Brings Together Leaders in Oncology Payment Reform to Share Innovations, Collaborate on Solutions, and Shape the Future of Cancer Care

The Payer Exchange Summit series gives us a timely, detailed look at how payers and providers are working together to achieve quality, high-value cancer care.”

— Bo Gamble, COA

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, October 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — What does the future hold for oncology payment reform? Are existing reform efforts succeeding? How do employers see their role in reducing cancer care costs? These issues and more will be discussed this week at the 11th annual Community Oncology Alliance (COA) Payer Exchange Summit on Oncology Payment Reform, taking place virtually this year from October 27-28.

The Payer Exchange Summit series is a unique gathering that brings together the different perspectives of community oncology stakeholders to discuss efforts that are advancing oncology payment reform, increasing value, and improving the patient experience in the United States’ cancer care system.

“2020 has been a year of great change and upheaval within the cancer care community, not least because of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus). Many plans and proposals for payment reform have slowed or stalled, while others have forged ahead and seen great success. The Payer Exchange Summit series gives us a timely, detailed look at how payers and providers are working together to achieve quality, high-value cancer care,” said Bo Gamble, COA’s director of strategic practice initiatives.

With at least 35 different oncology payment reform efforts underway across the United States, it is more important than ever for stakeholders to coordinate and collaborate. The Payer Exchange Summit aims to facilitate that, bringing together nearly every oncology-focused project and practice in the country. Speakers and attendees include leading cancer care providers, insurers, national and regional employers, employer health groups, policy makers, and industry leaders.

The agenda for the 2020 Payer Exchange Summit includes the current state of payment reform models; employer perspectives and participation in payment reform; the impact of COVID-19 on the cancer system; overcoming pharmacy benefit manager challenges; updates on COA’s next generation, universal payment model the Oncology Care Model 2.0; and more.

The invitation-only nature, structure, and small scale of the COA Payer Exchange Summit seeks to enable networking and idea exchanges. Attendees get to make connections that enable pilot projects and spark inspiration to craft viable, truly patient-centric solutions to pressing cancer system needs. Since the first Payer Exchange Summit in 2014, numerous oncology payment reform initiatives first discussed at the Summits have become a reality in both the Medicare and private sectors, as well as in markets across the country.

Oncology Nursing Society

ONS is a professional association that represents 100,000 nurses and is the professional home to more than 35,000 members.

Designed by nurses, this cloud-hosted tool ensures best practices in clinics and institutions.

Earlier symptom identification, comprehensive assessment, and prompt interventions reduce unplanned care.”

— Michele Galioto, DNP, RN, CNS

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED_STATES, October 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cancer treatment often causes symptoms that result in treatment delays and unplanned care. This adversely affects patient outcomes, healthcare costs, and patient satisfaction. To decrease these possibilities, the ONS Center for Innovation has launched ONS On-Call™, an oncology-specific decision support tool to guide standardized, evidence-based symptom assessments and leverage ONS’s proprietary evidence-based resources with patient-reported symptoms. Designed by nurses, this cloud-hosted tool ensures best practices in the clinic and institution by providing nurses with guided, comprehensive, and evidence-based assessments that illuminate the causative factors of patients’ symptoms and experience.

“Earlier symptom identification, comprehensive assessment, and prompt interventions reduce unplanned care,” said Michele Galioto, DNP, RN, CNS, executive director of the ONS Center for Innovation. “This tool gives healthcare providers and institutions the ability to enhance documentation and efficiency, improve communication among the healthcare team, and promotes an active role for patients within their care.”

ONS On-Call guides comprehensive assessments and augments critical thinking with essential clinical resources. Assessment content is derived from the highly regarded Chemotherapy and Immunotherapy Guidelines and Recommendations for Practice and from other ONS clinical resources and is offered as an interactive digital tool designed for use during in-person and virtual patient meetings. It captures symptoms and severity during patient interviews or within a patient-directed workflow that uses guided symptom algorithms and patient-friendly language.

The robust dashboards featured in ONS On-Call help to inform individual and population-specific care. In addition, it can Identify high-risk responses from patients. The cloud-hosted tool is HIPAA compliant, uses institutional single sign-on processes, and includes SMART on FHIR technology.
