Make Sure Your Insurance Company Honors Your Policy Terms
Dealing with an accident is stressful. When your insurance company won’t honor the terms of your policy after the accident, that makes everything unnecessarily more difficult. That is why it is extremely important to know what your policy says and make sure you get the coverage you paid for.
On April, 14, 2021, the federal court in Philadelphia rejected an argument by State Farm Insurance that it did not have to pay for all of the plaintiff’s damages after a car accident. In Depretis v. State Farm Mutual Auto Insurance Co., the plaintiff purchased a limited tort insurance policy that excluded his ability to recover for pain and suffering and non-monetary damages unless he had “serious injuries.” The federal court concluded that the plaintiff presented sufficient evidence that he had suffered serious injuries because his neck and shoulder/arm had been impaired from the motor vehicle accident for four years. Therefore, the jury should decide the case.
