Challenges the Insurance Company May Use Against Your Wrongful Death Claim (Part B)

Policy exclusions are always a big challenge. Companies put exclusions and limitations in insurance policies for a reason. They will do everything that they can to find a loophole for your claim so that they don't have to pay. The most common ways insurance companies will challenge your wrongful death claim include the following. 

  • Lack of evidence. If an insurance company can't be given reasonable evidence that the client is at fault for whatever happened, they will fight back in any way possible. They will try to say that you can't prove fault, that there are too many questions surrounding your claim, or that there simply isn't enough evidence to prove that you are worthy of a settlement.
  • Pre-existing conditions are another common challenge. If someone is a victim of wrongful death as a result of a condition that they might have had prior to the incident, insurance companies will try to claim that the condition was known and not their responsibility, even if the death occurred wrongfully.
  • Liability release or indemnity clauses. If someone else is responsible for a wrongful death claim you file, the insurance company will do their best to prove that you released them from liability or that they had no responsibility under the circumstances. 

Remember that the insurance companies' primary goal is to pay as little as possible, if anything, for your claim. Therefore, they are going to fight back in any way that they can. With a qualified Glenville wrongful death attorney on your side, your case will go much more smoothly.
