Weatherford insurance lawyers who handle insurance related matters need to understand that an anticipatory breach of the insurance contract has remedies under the law. This is best illustrated in disability policies where the insurance company is obligated to make monthly payments to the insured.
According to the 1937, Texas Supreme Court opinion styled, Universal Life & Accident Insurance Co. v. Sanders, when an insurance company is obligated by contract to make monthly payments of money to another absolutely repudiates the obligation without just excuse, the obligee is “entitled to maintain his action in damages at once for the entire breach, and is entitled in one suit to receive in damages the present value of all that he would have received if the contract had been performed, and he is not compelled to resort to repeated suits to recover the monthly payments.” Repudiation is conduct that shows a fixed intention to abandon, renounce, and refuse to perform the contract.
Another Texas Supreme Court is opinion is from 1976, and styled, Republic Bankers Life Insurance Company v. B.L. Jaeger.
