After a woman al’lege’d she contracted a se’xu’ally tran’smitted dise’ase in a car ins’ured by Geico, the company may now be responsible for paying her $5.2 million.
On Tuesday, a Missouri court upheld a ruling ordering the insurance company to pay a woman–referred to “M.O.” in court documents– $5.2 million for contracting HPV (human papillomavirus) in 2017 in a car insured by the company.
Geico followed up with an appeal, and on Tuesday a judge determined it “had no right to rel’itigate” the matter after dama’ges and lia’bility had been set by an arbit’rator of the co’urt.
The court also stated:
Geico did not take advantage of this opport’unity, and instead denied coverage and refused to defend Ins’ured.
There’s still a chance that Geico may not have to fork over millions, as a federal case has been filed by the insurer. Geico states the cla’im is not covered by the current auto policy.
