What can you do if a death claim is denied because the company found out that the insured was HIV positive but the insured did not know?
There are a few things you can do if you have a life insurance death claim that was denied. What you should not do is try to dispute the denial by yourself. Disputing death cl…aims should be handled by a professional who has a lot of experience dealing with life insurance denials. So two options: 1. Contact a local attorney who specializes in "bad faith claims" for life insurance. This person should have significant experience dealing with insurance companies. He/she will represent you in a legal dispute against the insurer and attempt to get your claim paid. You should expect to pay the attorney 30% of whatever you get from the insurer. 2. You can also contact The Center for Life Insurance Disputes. They offer an alternative to filing a lawsuit. Instead, they deal directly with the insurer in order to get your claim paid. Their service is usually about one-third the cost of an attorney and quicker because you don't have to wait for court dates and filing schedules. You need an attorney if there are grounds to challenge reason for denial.
A claim can be denied for a number of reasons, but three examples are" 1. The policy was not in force at the time of the loss. This can occur if the policy never… went into force (such as due to the first premium not having been paid), or because it lapsed because subsequent premiums were not paid. 2. The terms of the policy did not cover the type of loss involved. Insurance policies are issued to provide protection for specified categories of risks, If the loss did not fall within the ambit of coverage, it would be denied. Even if arguably within the scope of coverage, an exception or an exclusion to coverage, as stated in the policy, may apply. 3. Misrepresentation of a material fact when applying for the insurance. Insurers rely upon the truth of the answers given by the applicant when issuing a policy. If a loss occurs and the insurer discovers that there had been a material misrepresentation of fact when applying for the policy, coverage could be denied. A misrepresentation is generally held to be material if, had a truthful answer been given to the question, the insurer would have not issued the policy or, if it would have, only at a higher premium.

There may be exceptions, but under most policies you are covered as long as your son had your permission to drive the car. At one time there was an amendment on my policy st…ating that my car was NOT covered if my daughter was driving (after several tickets and three at-fault accidents), but that would not be normal. If your company is investigating, that probably means they are trying to determine if there is any validity to the other party's claim. They would not have to look any further than the policy to determine that your coverage did not include the injury.
