Common exclusions found in life insurance policies

Florida residents and others looking to purchase life insurance should understand that policies are binding contracts. Therefore, they may contain exclusions or exceptions that buyers need to look for prior to making a purchase. The exclusions or loopholes included in a life insurance policy are there to ensure that insurance companies can keep potential losses to a minimum. They may also be included to allow insurance companies to offer lower premiums compared to their competition.

Defining bad faith as it relates to insurance claims

Insurance companies in Florida and throughout the country are required to act in good faith in investigating and paying out policy claims. However, bad faith is defined differently depending on where the claim is made. In some cases, a bad faith action by an insurance company is a tort whereas it could be considered a breach of contract in other instances. In a tort case, a policyholder must show that benefits were withheld and that doing so was unreasonable.

Widow sues over denied life insurance claim

When a family in Florida loses a loved one, the pain and grief can be immense. Unfortunately, the practical costs can also be significant. This includes dealing with final expenses, hospital bills and funeral costs. When a life insurance policy refuses to pay out, surviving family members may face serious financial consequences. One veteran is fighting USAA, a major insurer for American military forces, in court after the company refused to pay out $1 million in life insurance benefits following the death of her husband.

Widow alleges breached contract in life insurance lawsuit

Life insurance is a common way for Florida residents to assure the continued security of family members in the event of one's death.

Battle continues over man's life insurance policy

Collecting on a life insurance policy can sometimes lead to unexpected problems for bereaved Florida families. One case on the other side of the country illustrates the kind of difficulties that people can face. In Utah, a man was shot and killed by a police officer. While the police allege that the man had raised a handgun and pointed it at the officer, his family and others say that the man put down the gun and ran through a gate into his own yard.
