ST. LOUIS — A father and daughter are suing a vehicle driver and their own insurer, alleging negligence and breach of insurance contract.

Medina Zulfic, by and through her next friend Cazim Zulfic, filed a complaint on Dec. 21 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Cedric Moore and American Family Insurance Co. alleging that American Family failed to perform its contractual obligations and Moore was at fault in a motor vehicle crash.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 26, 2008 Medina Zulfic was injured in a motor vehicle collision negligently caused by  Moore, an uninsured motorist. Medina Zulfic sustained serious, permanent and disabling injuries to her body and nervous system. She and her father, Cazim Sulfic, repeatedly demanded payment under their uninsured motorist benefits with American Family, but were unsuccessful in doing so. 

The plaintiff holds  Moore and American Family responsible because the company allegedly failed and continues to refuse to pay the plaintiffs' claim for benefits without just cause or excuse.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks damages of not less than $25,000, plus interest, attorney's fees, costs, and any further relief that the court may deem just and proper. They are represented by Stephen J. Koenig of Stephen J. Koenig Attorney at Law in Clayton.
