Life insurance is an extremely consequential legal matter, especially in situations where a family’s breadwinner has passed away. Such was the case for the Szacon family, whose father died of internal bleeding caused by food poisoning during a business trip to the United States. Their insurance company refused to acknowledge the death as an accident, and as such refused to pay the family in accordance with their life insurance policy.
To make a difficult time worse, the Szacon’s had trouble finding a lawyer to take their case. Eventually, after referrals from other lawyers, they turned to Paul Cahill and the team at Will Davidson LLP.
Leading up to their first meeting at Will Davidson, the Szacon’s expectations were low: they were discouraged by the results from their insurance company, and understood the complexity of their case based on other law firms’ reactions.
The Szacon’s were surprised and pleased by the settlement money that Cahill predicted, and were impressed by the team’s ability to efficiently prosecute the case. Will Davidson LLP consulted with experienced infectious disease specialist to prove that Mr. Szacon had died as a result of accidental food poisoning. As a result, the family received the money they needed from their life insurance provider.
