ST. LOUIS — A driver is suing an insurance company, citing alleged breach of contract by refusing to pay on an insurance claim.
Clifford Abram filed a complaint in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Liberty Mutual Insurance Co., alleging the defendant failed to comply with its obligation to pay a claim for coverage under the insurance contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 9, 2016, he was injured and his vehicle was damaged due to a collision at Miskell Boulevard in St. Clair County, Illinois. At the time of the accident, the plaintiff's insurance coverage was in effect, but he claims he was not provided uninsured motorist coverage that he was legally entitled to, as his policy included such coverage.
The plaintiff holds Liberty Mutual Insurance responsible because the defendant allegedly failed and refused to pay the plaintiff his damages under the uninsured motorist provisions of the policy.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for sums as fair and reasonable not to exceed $75,000, plus costs expended, together with additional statutory damages for vexatious refusal and for such other relief as may be appropriate under the circumstances. He is represented by Brent E. Labovitz of Defep and Kolker, LLC in Clayton, Missouri.
