Denied Nationwide Life Insurance Claim
Criminal history misrepresentation in the context of life insurance involves providing inaccurate or false information about one’s criminal history during the insurance application process. Our life insurance lawyers handle all denied life insurance claims. Insurance companies often inquire about an applicant’s criminal history to assess risk and determine policy terms. Misrepresentation in this regard can lead to issues with the policy or potential claim denial. Here are different types or scenarios of criminal history misrepresentation:
- Concealing Felony Convictions: Failing to disclose felony convictions is a common form of criminal history misrepresentation. Many life insurance applications ask about felony convictions, and hiding such information can lead to issues with the policy terms or potential claim denial.
- Misdemeanor Convictions Misrepresentation: Similar to felonies, some applications inquire about misdemeanor convictions. Misrepresenting or concealing such convictions can impact the policy’s terms and claim outcomes.
- Arrests and Pending Charges Misrepresentation: Some applications ask about arrests and pending criminal charges. Misrepresenting this information can lead to issues with the policy or claim denial, especially if the charges result in a conviction.
- DUI/DWI Misrepresentation: If an applicant has a history of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) convictions, they are typically required to disclose this information in the application. Misrepresenting DUI or DWI convictions can lead to issues with the policy terms or claim denial if the insured’s death is related to alcohol-related incidents.
- Violent Crime Misrepresentation: Concealing involvement in violent crimes such as assault, domestic violence, or similar offenses can affect the underwriting process and the terms of the policy.
- Drug Offense Misrepresentation: Some applications ask about drug-related convictions. Misrepresenting drug offenses can affect the policy’s terms and potential claim outcomes if drug-related issues arise.
- White-Collar Crime Misrepresentation: If an applicant has been involved in white-collar crimes like fraud, embezzlement, or identity theft, and the application asks about such offenses, concealing this information can lead to issues with the policy terms.
- Sex Offender Registry Misrepresentation: Some applications may specifically inquire about whether the applicant is registered as a sex offender. Misrepresenting registration as a sex offender can impact the policy terms and approval.
