Policy Check: Insurance Company Doesn’t Have an ‘Exploding Corpse’ Clause in Coverage, Homeowner Loses Battle to Claim on Damages

Screenshot 2014-04-27 at 8.50.08 AMA 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.
