ST. LOUIS – An Illinois woman is suing her insurer for coverage of injuries she sustained in an auto accident in Missouri.
Shenna Woods filed a complaint on Nov. 27 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Geico Casualty Co. alleging vexatious refusal to pay.
According to the complaint, on June 15, 2017, the plaintiff was injured in an automobile collision on Interstate 70 in Missouri when her vehicle was struck by an uninsured driver. At the time of the accident, the suit states the automobile insurance issued by defendant, which provided uninsured motorist coverage to the plaintiff, was in full force and effect.
The plaintiff holds Geico Casualty Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed and refused to pay the plaintiff pursuant to the provision of the insurance policy.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendant in an amount of more than $25,000, plus costs and all further relief as the court may deem proper and just. She is represented by Gene S. Hou of Missouri Injury Law Firm LLC in High Ridge.
