Insurance

A Kansas woman, identified as M.O., is seeking financial compensation from GEICO after engaging in unprotected sex and contracting anogenital human papillomavirus (HPV) from her ex-lover in his Hyundai Genesis. GEICO sent a countersuit to dismiss the case and claims that this incident does not fall under M.O.’s insurance coverage for injuries that are ‘out of the ownership, maintenance, or use of the car.’ GEICO is accusing M.O. and her ex of conspiring to capitalize on a disreputable situation after learning the two are in an agreement to settle M.O.’s claim and limit M.B.’s liability.

Passenger Injury Accidents

Being in a car wreck is overwhelming and serious despite whether you are the driver or passenger in a car collision. Many passengers do not take advantage of their legal rights after being the victim of an accident. This leaves individuals covering expensive accident-related costs while insurance companies and drivers fight out who was at-fault for the collision. Receiving the proper compensation can seem overwhelming and come off as extremely convoluted.

However, worrying about who is at fault is not the priority of the passenger. Texas civil laws require drivers to pay for the accidents in which they are at-fault, and this extends to their passengers. In some extreme cases, punitive damages may be given where the damages are in direct correlation to the motorist’s reckless or negligent driving.

As the passenger in a collision, you have the right to:

  • Right to Obtain Information
  • Right to Medical Attention
