What Happens If Weather Conditions Caused Your Loved One’s Fatal Crash?
Bad weather conditions have been found to significantly cause more run-off crashes than good ones. Unfortunately, most insurance denies any form of coverage in these types of conditions, since it falls under the ‘Act of God’ category. However, this depends on what type of insurance coverage your loved one had. If they had auto insurance that included comprehensive coverage, you should be entitled to file a claim and not be denied the payout that is within your rights as a benefactor of your loved one’s estates.
