[Fwd: [LegalMed] Georgia Appeals Court Revives Suit Accusing State Farm of Hiding Policy]
- FYI--esp. if you have state farm ins:
The following article may be of interest to members on this list. "Katherine
Merritt was an 18-year-old college student in 1996 when an automobile crossed
the centerline of a Cobb County, Ga., road and collided with her vehicle
head-on, severely injuring her.
The young woman agreed to settle with the driver's insurance company, State
Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company and State Farm Fire & Casualty
Company, for $250,000, after the company told her that was the limit of the
driver's coverage. Later, she says she learned that the driver was insured up
to $1.25 million. State Farm said it failed to disclose the additional
coverage due to an "oversight." Merritt's lawyers allege that State Farm
fraudulently withheld the information."
