BELLEVILLE — An insured motorist is suing State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company for allegedly failing to provide underinsured motorist coverage.
Kevin J. Boron filed a complaint on March 27 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, alleging the licensed insurer knowingly misrepresented relevant facts relating to coverages.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 1, 2016, he was involved in a crash with an uninsured driver where he suffered injuries that caused him to incur medical expenses of more than $11,000. The plaintiff and his counsel subsequently filed a claim for uninsured motorist benefits under the insurance policy issued by the defendant.
The plaintiff alleges State Farm failed to supply a certified copy of the insurance policy and failed and refused to tender medical payment coverage.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in his favor in an amount of more than $50,000, plus pre-judgment interest, attorney fees, costs, expenses and all other relief deemed just and proper.
He is represented by Matthew P. Young of Kuehn, Beasley & Young PC in Belleville.
