Can You Claim Death Benefits from Insurance in A DUI Incident?
Unfortunately, most, if not all, major insurance providers will deny death benefit claims for the beneficiary of the estate. This applies not only to auto insurance but also to life insurance coverage.
However, in the case of life insurance, you should be entitled to a return of the deceased’s premium. If you’d like to receive further legal advice regarding your death benefit situation, you can call us today by dialing (866) 698-2306.
