Car “Accident” Leads to STD Case and $5.2 Million Bill to Car Insurance CompanyJun 14, 2022
The media loves a sensationalized story, especially ones that gets people angry enough to share and comment on social media. When a woman won $5.2 million from car insurance company GEICO because she contracted an STD in the backseat of one of their insured vehicles, the Internet went wild. Cries of a judicial system run amok, activist judges needing to be fired, and runaway juries doing stupid things started being screamed from the comment sections. But what REALLY happened?
This was not about activist judges, runaway juries, or a messed up judicial system, but instead it was about binding arbitration and what happens when a company neglects to put on a real case when it needed to.
