TAMPA – A Pasco County, motor vehicle driver is suing an insurance company, citing alleged breach of contract by refusing to pay automobile insurance benefits.
Amanda Parker filed a complaint on May 10 in the Tampa Division for the Middle District of Florida against State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. alleging breach of insurance policy.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on March 15, 2016, plaintiff suffered significant injuries due to a motor vehicle accident in Hillsborough County caused by an underinsured driver. Parker alleges she filed for insurance benefits for underinsured claims to the defendant as she was covered by three policies of automobile insurance, but did not receive benefits applicable.
The plaintiff holds State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed and refused to pay benefits up to the applicable limits of the uninsured motorist benefits of plaintiff's policies.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks payment for compensatory damages for a sum of more than $75,000, with costs, and other further relief the court deems proper. She is represented by Michael F. Hancock of Hancock Injury Attorneys in Tampa.
