ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis man alleges his insurance company has failed to pay uninsured motorist coverage for injuries he allegedly sustained in a collision in the city.
Darrion W. Busby filed a complaint on June 14 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Roland Antwone Knight and Farmers Insurance Co. Inc. alleging personal injury and vexatious refusal to pay.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 30, 2017, he was injured when defendant Knight, an uninsured driver, struck his vehicle near the intersection of Riverview Drive and Scranton Avenue in St. Louis. He alleges he suffered permanent and progressive injuries to his neck, back, left knee and both wrists as a result of the collision.
The suit states the plaintiff was covered under an insurance policy issued by Farmers at the time of the accident.
The plaintiff holds Knight and Farmers Insurance Co. Inc. responsible because the defendant Knight allegedly failed to keep a proper lookout and failed to yield to the right of way and defendant Farmers failed and reused to make payments as required by the policy.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against each defendant of more than $25,000, with interest, costs and all other relief that is just and proper. He is represented by James N. Guirl II of Guirl Law Firm in St. Louis.
