ST. LOUIS – A woman injured in an auto accident in Missouri is seeking further coverage from her insurer.
Michelle Handyside filed a complaint on Nov. 28 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. citing personal injury.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 3, 2017, she was injured in an auto collision due to the negligence of Aliah Woodall near the intersection of River Des Peres Boulevard and Weil Avenue. She alleges sustained injuries and incurred damages in excess of the tortfeasor's policy limits.
At the time of the occurrence, the insurance policy issued by defendant was in full force and effect and contained underinsured motorist benefits, the suit states.
The plaintiff holds State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly refused to pay plaintiff's damages pursuant to the terms of the policy.
The plaintiff seeks damages in a fair and reasonable amount, plus costs and all other relief that may be appropriate. She is represented by Scott L. Kolker of Kolker & Labovitz in Clayton.
