Exceptions to Insurers’ Right to Rescind for Inaccurate Information
Peter S. Selvin, Partner in ECJ's Litigation Department, published an article in the February 26, 2020 issue of the Daily Journal titled, "Exceptions to Insurers’ Right to Rescind for Inaccurate Information". The article discusses exceptions to the principle that misrepresentations in a life insurance application will allow the insurer the right to rescind the policy.
Peter evaluates key defenses to an insurer's rescission that were based on alleged misrepresentations in applications. Insurers will often conduct a post-claim investigation to verify the applicant's statement if a claim is made within two years after policy inception.
