An insurance company has filed suit against the Belleville company that it claims failed to pay more than $60,000 for a workers’ compensation policy.

The Travelers Indemnity Company claims it issued a workers’ compensation policy to defendant Central Development of Belleville in April 2009. In exchange for the policy, which was in effect for one year, Central Development agreed to pay all associated premiums, according to the complaint filed June 3 in St. Clair County Circuit Court. However, it failed to do so, the suit states.

“The plaintiff, after having reviewed the records of the defendant and performed the calculations authorized by the contract described above, identified a total earned premium, due and owing from the defendant and to be paid to the plaintiff, of $62,946,” the complaint says. “After reducing the earned premium by deposit premiums and other premium payments previously made, the plaintiff identified the amount still due and owing under this policy of insurance as $62,389.”

Travelers says Central Development breached its contract.

In addition to the money it claims it is owed, Travelers is seeking court costs and other relief the court deems just.

Janella L. Barbrow of Schmidt and Barbrow in Wheaton will be representing it.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 13-L-276.
