Rowe v. GEICO Insurance - $570,000
On a rainy day in slow traffic, B. Rowe was driving on I-95. Another car came alongside Rowe’s vehicle, suddenly accelerating. The car slid and swerved directly into the left side of Rowe’s vehicle. As a result of the accident, Mr. Rowe suffered disk herniations of the spine, a bulging disk in the lumbar spine, headaches, and back pain. He required an anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion. The man responsible for the crash carried insurance with Nationwide, and Nationwide paid the policy limits, however, Rowe’s insurance provider, GEICO did not fairly evaluate the claim and it became necessary to file a lawsuit against the company. A Brevard County jury ended up awarding $570,000 to Mr. and Mrs. Rowe.
