Insurance customer alleges GEICO refuses to compensate her after vehicle collision

By Noddy A. Fernandez | Feb 6, 2019

ORLANDO — A Volusia County woman is suing GEICO, alleging breach of an insurance contract.

Ines Byers filed a complaint Jan. 23 in Orange County Circuit against General Insurance Company (GEICO), alleging the insurer failed to provide compensation to the plaintiff for uninsured/underinsured motorist benefits.

According to the complaint, on June 19, 2017, Byers was injured in an automobile collision on Interstate Highway 4 in Winter Park by a Volkswagen Jetta owned and operated by Marynes Loor, an uninsured or underinsured motorist. The suit says Byers submitted an insurance claim and demand for payment of uninsured/underinsured motorist benefits in compliance with her active insurance policy issued by GEICO. 

However, the lawsuit states, despite performing all obligations required under the contract, Byers did not receive any compensation. The plaintiff alleges GEICO continues to refuse to adequately compensate her for the damages caused after a vehicle collision.

Byers seeks trial by jury and damages in excess of $15,000. She is represented by attorney Alfred Washington of Rue & Ziffra in Port Orange.
