No Insurance Award for Sex “Accident”

Global Administrator

…And something from the "Nothing To Lose" department -

No insurance award for "Sex Accident". The Supreme Court of Canada has scrapped a $200,000 insurance award to a Vancouver man who became paralyzed after medical treatments arising from him having unprotected sex with 3 women. He acquired a rare complication of genital herpes and became totally paralyzed from his mid-abdomen down. Compensation was claimed under a group accident policy. It was determined by the court that although tragic and unexpected, it was not an accident and therefore did not qualify as an accident claim.
