ST. LOUIS – An injured driver alleges her insurer failed to pay her an amount required by her policy for damages from an accident with an uninsured motorist.
Gabrielle Crawford filed a complaint on Oct. 2 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Farmers Insurance Co. Inc. alleging vexatious refusal.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 2, she was injured in a motor vehicle collision caused by the carelessness of Moria Allen, an uninsured motorist. She alleges she suffered injuries to her knee, back and head and incurred medical expenses and lost wages as a result of the collision. At the time of the accident, she alleges she was insured under an insurance policy provided by the defendant.
The plaintiff holds Farmers Insurance Co. Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed and refused to pay the full amounts due under the terms of the insurance policy. Instead, it only offered $14,545.47, the suit states.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendant in an amount of more than $25,000, plus costs and all further relief that are just and reasonable. She is represented by Benjamin J. Sansone of Sansone Sumner & Lauber in Clayton.
