Independent Mutual Fire Insurance sued for allegedly failing to pay fire claim

By Kelly Holleran | Oct 7, 2013

A St. Clair County woman claims her insurance company refuses to reimburse her more than $25,000 for damages her home sustained during a fire.

Annie Williams claims her home sustained about $25,000 worth of damages during a Nov. 1 fire. At the time, she had insurance through defendants Independent Mutual Fire Insurance Company and Homesite Insurance Company of Illinois, according to the complaint filed Sept. 19 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.

Although Williams has notified the companies of her damages, they refuse to reimburse her, the suit states.

In her two-count complaint, Williams is seeking a judgment of more than $100,000 but no more than $150,000, plus costs, pre- and post-judgment interest and other relief the court deems just.

David C. Knieriem of Clayton will be representing her.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 13-L-482.
