TAMPA – A Hudson motorist
alleges her insurer has refused to pay benefits after a vehicle collision.
Amanda Parker filed a complaint on Jan. 12 in
the 13th Judicial Circuit of Florida - Hillsborough County against State Farm
Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. alleging breach of policy.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff
alleges that on March 15, 2016, she sustained significant injuries and incurred
medical expenses, as a result of an accident caused by an underinsured
individual in Tampa. She alleges she has three policies through the defendant
but that it refused to pay benefits.
The plaintiff holds State Farm Mutual Automobile
Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay
insurance benefits to plaintiff, failed to provide a prompt and reasonable
explanation of the basis for the denial of plaintiff’s claims, and failed to
properly and adequately investigate the merits of plaintiff’s claim.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks
judgment in her favor, compensatory damages of more than $15,000, and costs of
proceedings. She is represented by Michael F. Hancock of Hancock Injury
Attorneys in Tampa.
