CLEARWATER — A Hernando County woman is suing Allstate, alleging breach of an insurance contract.
Jacqueline N. Kanaris filed a complaint Dec. 21 in Pinellas County Circuit Court against Allstate Fire and Casualty Insurance Company, alleging failure to provide crash coverage under the terms of the insurance policy.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 18, 2017, Kanaris was traveling eastbound in the curb lane of Tampa Road, approaching Curlew Road in Oldsmar. The suit says the motorist Erik P. Swanson negligently struck the rear end of Kanaris' vehicle, resulting in a chain reaction collision.
Kanaris says the crash caused her bodily injury, great physical pain and suffering, disability, impairment, mental anguish, loss of earnings, aggravation of an existing disease, and medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges Allstate Fire and Casualty Insurance has failed to compensate her for her injuries under the terms of the uninsured/underinsured motorist policy of insurance.
Kanaris seeks trial by jury, damages in excess of $15,000, exclusive of costs. She is represented by attorneys Brent M. Lowman and J. Alexander Lao of Lowman Law Firm in Brooksville.
