BELLEVILLE — A passenger is suing Liberty Mutual Fire Insurance Company for denying his claim following a collision.
Jay A. Isaak filed a complaint on Sept. 16 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Liberty Mutual and motorist Jason Glasper.
Isaak alleges Liberty Mutual breached its contractual obligation pursuant to its uninsured motorist provisions and that Glasper was negligent in operating a motor vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 4, 2014, he was a passenger in a vehicle being operated by a driver carrying automobile insurance coverage through Liberty Mutual. He claims the vehicle was struck by a vehicle driven by Glasper, who doesn't have an automobile insurance coverage. The plaintiff says he made a claim against Liberty Mutual under its uninsured motorist provision because of injuries he suffered, but has been denied payment.
The plaintiff alleges Liberty Mutual failed and refused to make a proper payment for a claim.
He alleges Glasper negligently operated his vehicle.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants in excess of $50,000, costs for this action, pre- and post-judgment interest and any further relief. He is represented by Robert J. Radice of Horas, Radice & Associates LLC in St. Louis.
