Many people own term life insurance policies which, like all policies, contain exclusions. Exclusions provide that under certain circumstances benefits are not payable. Often times there is confusion as to whether a certain fact situation involving a death would qualify as a “exclusion.” Insurance companies typically are quite quick to assert the benefit of an “exclusion.” However, often times there is room to argue that the exclusion would not apply and that the benefit should be payable. A circumstance, for instance, might be that a group life insurance policy (a policy provided through work) provides that an employee will not receive benefits if the death involves the employee driving while intoxicated. Such policies often require specific blood test types and blood test results. However, often, it is the case that not only the type of test that is existent and the result of that test do not clearly “exclude benefits.” Another common dispute in life insurance policies is who the beneficiary is. Often time’s beneficiary forms are filled out improperly or in a way that is unclear as to naming the beneficiary.

Social Media is a prominent part of many people’s lives these days. With the advent of these technologies comes a lot of hidden risk. People tweet and post on Facebook about their personal experiences without filtering much of it. Many people don’t realize that these posts and tweets can be used against them in pending litigation.
While you may feel the compulsion to post or tweet about everything that happens to you, you should resist the urge when you get involved with something that could result in pending litigation. These tweets and posts can be viewed as party admissions and used as evidence against you.
In this age of technology, social media is increasingly becoming a source of problems for people if they aren’t careful of what they post. With the ever increasing presence of social media in our lives, persons should exercise caution in what is posted on social media sites.
