Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit for up to $92 million. The lawsuit accused Northwestern Mutual of failing to pay dividends on certain term life policies and using improper sales and marketing practices. The lawsuit was filed four years ago by a customer in California who said the insurer’s sales materials misled him about whether dividends would be paid on term life and disability insurance. The proposed settlement covers about 1.3 million current and 1.6 million former policy owners who have purchased term life or disability coverage since 1981.

Impressed with the Beasley Allen staff

I am very impressed with the Beasley Allen staff. They were very courteous and patiently explained the aspects of my claim in a way I could understand. If I ever have any need of an attorney in the future I will turn to Beasley Allen.
