ST. LOUIS – A Missouri man alleges his insurer breached a contract when it failed to pay his two claims in full.
William Stachovic filed a complaint on Oct. 23 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Progressive Casualty Insurance Co. alleging breach of contract and vexatious refusal.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 16, 2017, he was injured in a collision with a negligent, uninsured driver. At the time of the occurrence, the suit states he was insured under two policies issued by defendant for which he made a claim for payment for the uninsured motorist coverage for the injuries and damages he suffered.
The plaintiff holds Progressive Casualty Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly denied to pay his claim for payment of $100,000 under one policy and a claim for $500,000 under another.
The plaintiff seeks a judgment in an amount of more than $25,000, prejudgment interest, and any other relief as the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Jim Avery of Schultz & Myers LLC in St. Louis.
