Vietnam war veteran – post-traumatic stress disorder
A Vietnam War veteran suffered post-traumatic stress disorder as a consequence of his participation in the Vietnam War. We defended the Supreme Court proceeding on the basis that the life insurer was entitled to avoid the policy on the ground of fraudulent non-disclosure, the life insurer acted reasonably in forming the opinion that the insured did not meet the TPD definition and that the war exclusion had been triggered. After convening an early conference, the matter settled for a modest sum at a time when both parties’ legal costs were very low.
