A critical illness insurance policy pays out a one-time lump sum payment in the event that you are diagnosed with one of the critical illnesses included in your policy.
Non-payment of a critical illness insurance policy can be very upsetting, particularly when you’re dealing with a critical illness at the same time and are relying on financial support from your policy to cover costs related to your illness. Whether it provides much-needed money for living expenses or you use it to seek medical treatment not covered by health insurance plans, your payment is crucial. Our critical illness insurance lawyers can help you get what you’re entitled to under your policy.
Before accepting a refusal by an insurance company to pay out on your claim, we encourage you to consult further with our critical illness insurance lawyers to determine whether we can assist you in recovering all or part of what rightly belongs to you or your family.

David Share, President of Share Lawyers, on what critical illness insurance is, why critical illness claims are denied, and what Share Lawyers can do to help.
Critical illness insurance claims exist to pay out a defined lump-sum amount to the claimant in the event that they're diagnosed with a critical illness that will interfere with their day-to-day life.
These policies offer coverage for a host of serious illnesses. However, the particular way in which a critical illness insurance policy defines illness—including its severity—is often subject to review by insurance companies and their staff of medical professionals.
