What is an accidental death benefit?
What is an accidental death benefit? An accidental death benefit usually has to do or is related to an insurance policy in addition to the standard benefits. It is used in the case if someone passes away and it is not the result of, for example, a murder or perhaps a suicide. Sometimes, there is essentially what is called a benefit related to someone’s early passing from some sort of accident. Those can arise out of things such as a wrongful death case where there is a negligent act that causes someone else’s death. In these cases, there is sometimes there is a policy that applies there.
If you have got a scenario like that, the key really is to call a lawyer as soon as possible. I would recommend that you just run that scenario by them. Why? Because you never know what sorts of policies, umbrella policies, accidental death benefit type policies might apply to the situation you are in. It is better to ask the questions early on so that you know the full extent of your potential benefits.
