- Man was not covered under the policy at the time of the accident
- Client did not disclose relevant medical history when applying for coverage
- Under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident
- Injuries were self-inflicted or intentionally caused by someone else

- Death or injuries were caused by a non-covered event, such as natural disasters or war
