BELLEVILLE — A motorist is suing State Farm, alleging she was not provided the insurance coverage that she had paid for following a vehicle crash.
Jill Harbison filed a complaint April 1 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, alleging breach of an insurance contract.
The suit states Harbison was insured by State Farm, with underinsured motorist coverage up to $100,000. She alleges she was involved in a collision on June 21, 2015 with an uninsured driver. She claims she was given permission by State Farm on July 6, 2017, to accept $20,000 from the uninsured motorist who had collided with her.
The plaintiff claims she then requested that she be provided with underinsured motorist coverage benefits, which she had purchased, but State Farm has failed to do so.
Harbison seeks judgment in excess of $60,000, fees, interest and costs. She is represented by attorney W. Alex Lamb of Lieser Law Firm LLC in St. Louis.
