Legal Question in Insurance Law in New Jersey

I'm a beneficiary on my uncle's life insurance and when he died I signed an assignment to a funeral home which I faxed to them. They say they need an original in order to process the insurance claim. I now want to rescind this assignment and file the life insurance claim for myself. I did not sign a contract with the funeral home, his wife made all the arrangements. I agreed at that time because they said they could not bury him without it. Am I still liable for this?

Please keep in mind that my response is just a general comment on your question, and not legal advice. I have answered based upon the law of the State of New Jersey where I practice; the laws in other states may be very different, and may result in very different outcomes. Your question and any response does NOT create an attorney-client relationship between you and this law firm. The exact details of your situation and things that you have not mentioned in your question can completely change the response I gave. You can not rely upon what I have written as legal advice, because I do not have all of the information that I need to advise you, I only have the very small amount of information that you put into your question. To get legal advice that you can rely on and use, please contact me directly.
