ST. LOUIS – A woman injured in an auto accident alleges her insurer has failed to uphold its obligations under a policy.

Nicole A. Dash filed a complaint on June 25 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Geico Casualty Co. alleging vexatious refusal.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 17, 2016, she was in her vehicle and was stopped on Halls Ferry Road when a phantom driver struck the rear of her vehicle. She alleges she sustained injuries to her head, neck, shoulders, arms, chest and other parts of the body. 

The suit states at the time of the collision, she was covered with the uninsured motorist coverage provided by defendant. 

The plaintiff holds Geico Casualty Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed and refused to honor its obligations under the policy.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of more than $25,000, plus interest and penalties, attorney's fees, costs and all further relief that are appropriate but not more than $75,000. She is represented by Stephen W. Thurmer of Stephen W. Thurmer LLC in St. Louis.
