Legal & General

London, UK: (Jul-10-07) An insurance claim lawsuit was filed against Legal & General on behalf of Letchworth widower David Webb, whose wife was killed when a suicidal driver deliberately crashed into their car. Sarah Webb, 29, died in December 2004 when the car she was traveling in with her two-year-old daughter and her husband, was hit by an oncoming car. The other driver, Charles Brown, 19, was purposely traveling at a high speed, the wrong way down the A1 (M). Webb swerved away, Brown steered towards them resulting in a devastating collision. He is serving a 10 year prison sentence for manslaughter. The insurance giant refused a full life insurance payment because of small print. Legal & General found an entry on Webb's medical records which implied she was a smoker, and although this had no bearing on the cause of her death, refused to pay out, claiming it was important information. In a settlement reached, Legal & General agreed to a £100,000 out-of-court settlement, resolving the lawsuit. [WEB WIRE: INSURANCE DISPUTE]
