What if we applied for life insurance and completed the application simply unaware of some information that our doctor did not share?
This problem usually arises only when a claim has been submitted and the clinical notes and records provided by your doctor do not match the information you may have given on the insurance application. When applying for life insurance, you should review your records with your doctor to ensure that you do give accurate answers to the medical questions. Once the claim is denied, it could still be possible to pursue it, even if your answers were incorrect, if it can be shown that you really were not aware of a medical condition. A thorough review of all of the evidence by a qualified lawyer would be the place to start to see if there is any hope of succeeding.
