My question involves insurance law for the state of: Tennessee
In 2006 my sister died in a house fire that was determined to be a set fire by her finance. He has never been charged or anything even though they say it was a set fire. We have filed a claim for the life insurance proceeds of which he was beneficiary and now the insurance company wants to inter plead the money since he filed a claim too. My question is this would my states wrongful death statue affect our case? What grounds can we use to claim the money? The life insurance company has been told by the da that it is an ongoing investigation but an attorney friend has told us that if he was going to be charged he already would have by now given his knowledge of our town. how do we prevent him from getting the money we think he killed her for?
