ST. LOUIS – A driver alleges he was injured in a collision with an uninsured motorist and that his insurer has refused to provide any coverage.
Shawn O'Donnell filed a complaint on Nov. 29 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. alleging vexatious refusal to pay and breach of contract.
According to the complaint, on April 14, the plaintiff was involved in an auto collision when an uninsured driver struck his vehicle at or near the intersection of South Kingshighway and Interstate 64 in St. Louis. He alleges he sustained injuries to his back, neck, chest and head. Subsequently, he submitted a claim for payment for the uninsured motorist coverage pursuant to the insurance policy issued by defendant, the suit states.
The plaintiff holds State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly has refused to provide any coverage in breach of its duty.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in an amount of more than $25,000 and less than $75,000 and all other relief deemed appropriate. He is represented by Christopher R. Dixon and Lee E. Snodgrass of The Dixon Injury Firm in St. Louis.
