Consumer Rights Defended in Uninsured Motorists Case

The Florida Supreme Court is set to decide another case involing consumer rights under an uninsured motorists policy of insurance. Uninsured motorists insurance pays for the medical expenses, wage loss and other losses suffered as the result of injuries caused by an uninsured reckless driver.

In this case the insurance company, State Farm, utilized a loop hole to try to deny its insured payment under the policy. This loop hole required its insured to attend an examination by an insurance doctor to dispute the care and treatment rendered by the injured persons own doctors.

The insured filed suit and a jury ruled in her favor. An appelate court upheld the juries decsion. State Farm then appealed to the Florida Supreme Court asking it to uphold this loophole and deny payment to the insured.

The case is known as Curran v State Farm, and the Florida Justice Academy has filed a friend of Court brief, which can be found here;
