Lawsuit Claims Life Insurance Payout Denied Due to Height

Amarillo Globe-News – A Lubbock woman is suing a Pennsylvania insurer, alleging the company improperly denied a $200,000 death benefit claim because it said her ex-husband listed the wrong height on his insurance application. The suit was filed Tuesday in Amarillo’s U.S. District Court by Michelle Sanders, who sued on behalf of her daughter, the biological child of Henry Sanders, who was killed in a motor vehicle accident in 2013. Carol Duncan Sanders, the surviving Amarillo spouse of Henry Sanders, also is a plaintiff in the case, which names Life Insurance Co. of North America as the defendant. – Go To Story
