Bartolic Law helped a grieving widow fully recover accidental death insurance proceeds when her husband passed from a Fentanyl overdose. And we accomplished it discreetly, without any need for litigation or public record of what happened. The insurer was particularly hostile because the decedent had a criminal record from decades ago. Through our investigation, we discovered the decedent visited someone’s home at the time of the overdose. There was no evidence of any drug administration by needle or transdermally in the autopsy report. We interviewed the medical examiner who stated his examination would have documented any recent needle punctures or transdermal patch skin marks. The police report documented someone in the house heard the decedent say he had a headache hours before death, and we found an Aspirin bottle near the decedent’s location. We were able to get the person living there to acknowledge possessing Fentanyl tablets kept in the Aspirin bottle, and we showed how similar Fentanyl tablets look to Aspirin. The insurer concluded it did not have enough evidence to challenge the death was accidental, and paid our client in full, helping her financially manage with her husband gone.
