Our client called us to discuss her delayed accidental death claim following the untimely death of her husband. Tragically, he died when his motorcycle collided with a dump truck. The insurance company delayed the claim for more than 8 months, alleging that the insured was driving under the influence of cannabis, which he was illegally using and which allegedly caused the accident and his ultimate death.
When our attorney took over the case, we discovered that other factors caused the accident, that the insured was legally using cannabis, and that the illegal substance exclusion would not apply to this case. The insurance company paid the claim with interest. Our client was very pleased with the fast outcome in her favor.
