Uninsured Motoroist Case to Supreme Court
The Florida Supreme Court is considering whether it will decide an important consumer rights issue on the stacking of Uninsured Motorists Insurance.
In Travelers v Harrington, the First District Court of Appeals upheld consumer rights by holding insureds and their family members must separately and individually reject valuable Uninsured Motorists benefits. An insurance company cannot simply collect premiums on behalf of all insureds and family members with out any regard to to whether it has an obligation to pay benefits in the event of a tragic accident.
Travelers appealed the issue to the Supreme Court, and will ultimately ask the Court to allow insurance companies to legally limit insurance benefits to injured individuals and their families regardless of whether the injured person agreed to that limitation or not.
