ST. LOUIS – An insurance company is alleged to have refused to pay a man the benefits he is entitled to in a claim over injuries sustained in an auto accident.
Deon Benson filed a complaint on Jan. 25 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Allstate Fire and Casualty Insurance Co. alleging vexatious refusal.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 17, 2017, he was involved in an auto collision caused by Robert Beauchamp, an uninsured driver. He alleges suffered injuries to his shoulder, knee and leg as a result of the accident.
At the time of the incident, the suit states the insurance policy issued by defendant to the plaintiff was in full force and effect.
The plaintiff holds Allstate Fire and Casualty Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly refused to pay the benefits he is entitled to receive under the policy and has failed to fully and fairly compensate him.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all damages, with interest, attorney's fees, costs and all other relief deemed appropriate. He is represented by Benjamin J. Sansone of Sansone & Lauber in Clayton.
