Florida woman loses battle for insurance coverage after home was damaged by ‘exploding’ corpse
UK Daily Mail ^ | 4/26/14 | Alex Greig

Posted on 04/26/2014 8:55:35 PM PDT by Rebelbase

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.

Goooood old-fashioned nightmare fuel, right there.

I don’t know.

Does a rupturing body sound like a bursting pipe?

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?

Odd argument, as if the association knew there was a corpse and just left it there.

My one experience with ServePro involved substantial overcharges (the company admitted that 2/3 of the billed amount was bogus) and serious ethical deficiencies.

Essentially they knew the house was a total loss, but tried to sell me water extraction from a burned carpet and drying fans for the same burned carpet.

The did claim that they fired the manager responsible, but offered no proof.

King William the Conquerer exploded in his coffin too, making his mourners leave the church after bits of his body parts were.... Well.....it would make a great Monty Python sketch.

why wouldn’t the apartment compllex be liable? she couldn’t force them to clean the dead guys’ place if they stalled on it, or left it to damage her place.

If the condo assoc left the body there, deliberately, instead of not knowing there was a dead body in the condo, then THEY should be the ones responsible for the cost of clean up.

I watched (from a safe distance) a large group of hunters pull an arrow out of a long dead deer. Every one of them puked until they were empty, and kept on retching. The sound was a sort of Pftssssshhhhhhhhhhhaaahhhhhh.

Emphasis on “range”.

All summer, with great apprehension, I ride the Harley past deer-bombs on the roads.

The smaller vermin-bombs are not as scary...except for the skunks.

Crack the throttle and pray I miss the big moment.

More like a loud fart, I'd imagine.

A bursting pipe might kill me, but a rupturing body will at most gross me out.

Actually, it reminds me of a murder case belonging to a client of the late GOP-e senator from Pennsylvania, Arlen Spector.

Seems counselor Spector's client, Ira Einhorn, of progressive Earth Day 1970 fame, had a girlfriend, Holly Maddux, who went missing (1979). Her parents hired a PI who got a warrant to search Einhorn's apartment. A downstairs neighbor told of a liquid leaking from his apartment into the kitchen below, describing it as being dark in color and smelling of putrefaction. He also testified to hearing a scream, as well as "several sharp thuds", at the time of Holly's disappearance.

Einhorn skipped bail and fled to Europe, but was eventually extradited back (from France, in 2001) and now rots in the can.
