Skip to comments.Florida woman loses battle for insurance coverage after home was damaged by ‘exploding’ corpse

A Florida appeals court judge has ruled that an insurer is not liable for damages that occurred to an apartment after a neighbor's dead body 'exploded.'
Judy Rodrigo battled State Farm for almost six years, arguing that the insurer of her Jupiter condo should pay for the clean-up of her apartment.
She argued that the Keystone Condominium Association left the neighbor's corpse so long that the body's fluid leaked into her apartment.

Sounds like something Cannibal Corpse would write a song about.
Sounds like a plumping rupture causing water damage.
“...left the neighbor’s corpse so long that the body’s fluid leaked into her apartment.”
Goooood old-fashioned nightmare fuel, right there.
I don’t know.
Does a rupturing body sound like a bursting pipe?
I hate it when that happens.
Cueing Monty Python..........”Ooooo - Mrs. N_____ exploded!”
... Notice, it’s Florida.
... Notice, its Florida.
Beat me to it.
LIKE IT NEVER HAPPENED! Oh wait...bodily fluids and pus? GROSS!!
Or better yet, Walter White & Co. A LOT more experience...
Most insurance policies specifically exclude exploding corpses. Well, at least I would assume they do.
State Farm offered to pay for the cleanup, but she wanted “explosion coverage”.
Sounds like suing Taco Bell for flatulence because fire and explosion are named perils. (They do label their hot sauce ‘Fire’ and those beans do cause ‘explosions’.)
Is damage from exploding bodies covered under a comprehensive plan?
Seems to me the condo association should bear some responsibility.
“She argued that the Keystone Condominium Association left the neighbor’s corpse so long that the body’s fluid leaked into her apartment.”
Odd argument, as if the association knew there was a corpse and just left it there.
Why did this even make it to court wtf?
