Plaintiff Alleges Insurance Company Mishandled His Case And Offered Unfair Compensation
An auto insurance provider and a motorist are among those facing a lawsuit filed on behalf of a prominent Kentucky attorney seriously injured after his bicycle was allegedly struck from behind by a driver. According to the Courier-Journal, the attorney and his wife seek as much as $4.5 million to cover medical expenditures and continuing care costs stemming from the January 2015 Kentucky incident.
Among the allegations made in the lawsuit is that the plaintiff’s insurance provider failed to offer a fair sum to the lawyer and his wife. The accident victim also asserts that his insurance agent mishandled his policy, affecting his coverage limits at the time of the accident. The motorist believed responsible for the accident said he failed to see the victim because the sun was in his eyes. The plaintiff said he would cease his lawsuit against the driver if he can receive adequate compensation for his losses from his insurance carriers, the website reported.
