On November 19, 2003, Mr. and Mrs. Janota were killed in a car accident. The individual liable for the accident was uninsured. The executor of the Janota Estate filed a claim against State Farm for $250,000, and when State Farm agreed to pay the estate only $100,000, filed suit against State Farm seeking to reform the Janota insurance policy to $250,000 for uninsured benefits.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage (UM) applies when a driver causing an accident does not have liability insurance, despite state law requiring all drivers to have this, or runs away following an accident and cannot be found.
