Woman who caught STI in boyfriend's car wins $5.2m payout from his insurer

After claiming that she had contracted a sexually transmitted disease in an automobile it owned, a woman won $5.2 million (PS4.1m) in insurance.

Missouri woman, named MO by her claimant, claims she had sex in a car that Geico insured.

Court documents show that she claimed this led to her contracting HPV (human-papillomavirus). This was because the man did not tell her.

If left untreated, HPV can cause cervical cancer and even genital warts.

MO informed Geico, a Maryland-based firm, that she was planning to sue them $1m for not covering her “injuries or losses”.

Geico refused to pay for the settlement. Instead, they claimed that her “injury”, which she sustained while driving the vehicle, was not due to normal use.

Later, an arbitrator ruled that she should receive $5.2 million in damages.

Missouri: More

The woman filed a motion at Jackson County Court to seek her damages money.

After several appeals from Geico, a Missouri Court of Appeals panel of three judges affirmed her claim on Thursday

The firm claims it will file a federal suit to prove that the woman was not covered under her boyfriend’s insurance.

Geico stated that Thursday’s statement would be the final word on whether “there is coverage in this case”.
