EDWARDSVILLE — A Granite City property owner is suing an insurance company, alleging delays in a claims settlement.
Alwayz Kare Inc. filed a lawsuit Sept. 6 in Madison County Circuit Court against Conifer Insurance Company, alleging violation of the Illinois Insurance Code.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 24, 2014, while Alwayz Kare's property insurance was in effect, the property at 2300 Clinton Drive, Granite City, was severely damaged by fire. The suit says the total property damage does not exceed the limit of liability under the term of the policy of $388,635.
The plaintiff alleges Conifer has failed and refuses to pay the amounts claimed under the insurance policy.
Alwayz Kare seeks trial by jury, judgment of more than $100,000, plus costs of suit, penalties and attorney fees.
It is represented by attorney John L. Bitzer of Bitzer Law Firm in Collinsville.
