Frequently Asked Questions
A death claim is a type of insurance claim that is filed when someone dies. Death claims can be filed for life insurance policies, health insurance policies, and other types of insurance policies.
In order to file a death claim, the beneficiary of the policy will need to contact the insurance company and provide them with proof of death. The insurance company will then investigate the claim and make a determination on whether or not the death is covered by the policy.
If you are the beneficiary of a life insurance policy, it is important to contact the insurance company as soon as possible after the death of the insured. If you have any questions about filing a death claim, you should contact an experienced life insurance attorney.
Wrongful death claims are filed by the survivors of the deceased, while estate claims are filed by the personal representative of the estate. Both types of claims can seek damages for the death of the deceased, but they are different in some key ways.
Wrongful death claims are filed in civil court, while estate claims are filed in probate court. This means that the burden of proof is different for each type of claim. In a wrongful death claim, the survivors must prove that the death was caused by someone else’s negligence. In an estate claim, the personal representative must prove that the death was caused by fraud or misrepresentation.
Wrongful death claims can seek damages for things like loss of consortium, while estate claims can seek damages for things like pain and suffering. This means that the types of damages that are available in each type of claim are different.
If you have lost a loved one and are considering filing a claim, you should contact an experienced wrongful death attorney to discuss your options.
There are a few reasons why life insurance companies may not pay out on a policy. The most common reason is that the policyholder has committed suicide. Most life insurance policies have a clause that voids the policy if the policyholder commits suicide within a certain period of time after the policy is issued.
Another reason why life insurance companies may not pay out on a policy is if the policyholder dies as a result of criminal activity. If the policyholder is killed in a robbery, for example, the life insurance company may refuse to pay out on the policy.
Finally, life insurance companies may also refuse to pay out on a policy if the death was caused by something that is not covered by the policy. For example, if the policyholder dies as a result of an illness that is not covered by the policy, the life insurance company may refuse to pay out on the claim.
