Life Insurance for Las Vegas Shooting Victims
If you are one of the unfortunate families who had a loved one murdered by Paddock, you have our deepest sympathy. We know that no matter how hard we try, we cannot put ourselves in your position. There is no amount of money that can adequately compensate you for your loss.
As set forth above, you have a valid wrongful death claim against Paddock’s estate. However, it is quite likely that a claim against Paddock’s estate could take years to get resolved. As a result, you are looking for immediate sources to help you pay for your ongoing living costs, bills and expenses. If your loved one had life insurance, that is an immediate source of funds available to the beneficiary or beneficiaries. In order to obtain the life insurance policy proceeds, you need to contact the life insurance company and report your loved one’s death. You will need to obtain a certified copy of the Death Certificate to provide to the life insurance company. Typically, completing some forms and providing the certified Death Certificate is all that is required to obtain the life insurance money.
In addition to individual life insurance policies, you should contact your loved one’s employer and credit card companies. In some circumstances, employers may have life insurance policies for their employees. It is also possible that your loved one had some type of life insurance or similar benefit from his or her credit cards. While these types of benefits are not very common, it is worth your effort to see if any such benefits exist.
