Probably, the two most common types of life insurance policies found in Tennessee are term life insurance policies and whole life insurance policies. Both types of policies require the life insurance company to pay a certain sum upon the death of the insured. Whole life insurance policies, like universal life insurance policies, variable life insurance policies, and variable universal life insurance policies, have an investment component. Term life insurance policies do not.

A life insurance company may deny the payment of benefits to a beneficiary of a life insurance policy for any number of invalid reasons. Some of the bases on which life insurance companies which offer life insurance policies in Tennessee deny life insurance benefits are:

  • Fraud the life insurance company claims was committed by the insured
  • A material misrepresentation which the life insurance company claims was made when the application for life insurance was completed
  • A lapse of coverage allegedly caused by the failure of the insurance company to receive a premium payment
  • Suicide

You should never automatically accept the reason put forth by a life insurance company for denying payment of life insurance benefits as being legitimate or consistent with the terms of the agreement made by the company. Life insurance policy terms, conditions, and exclusions are complex: So is Tennessee law related to life insurance policies. The Nashville insurance policy lawyers at Pepper Law, PLC are skilled and experienced when it comes to evaluating clients’ rights against insurance companies and recognizing illegitimate and bad faith denials of claims.
