ST. LOUIS – A Centerville woman alleges two insurers have refused to pay her claims for uninsured motorist benefits.
Lakisha Martin filed a complaint on May 4 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against GEICO Casualty Co. and Esurance Property & Casualty Insurance Co. alleging negligence and vexatious refusal to pay.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on March 2, 2017, she was injured as a passenger in a vehicle when an uninsured motorist struck the vehicle on South Grand Boulevard in St. Louis. She alleges she suffered injuries to her head, neck, back, right shoulder, right arm and hip, for which she claims uninsured motorist benefits under the policy issued by defendants.
The plaintiff holds GEICO Casualty Co. and Esurance Property & Casualty Insurance Co. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed and refused to pay plaintiff's claim for uninsured motorist coverage.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants, jointly and severally, for damages of more than $25,000, costs of court, prejudgment interest and all other relief that is necessary. She is represented by Kurt E. Wolfgram of Wolfgram & Associates PC in St. Louis.
