A woman injured in an automobile collision nearly two years ago is suing her insurance provider for all the benefits she claims are still owed to her.
Beaumont local Jennifer Fisher filed suit against her insurance provider, Farmers Texas County Mutual Insurance, on May 23 in Jefferson County District Court, seeking to collect underinsured motorist benefits.
According to the lawsuit, on July 7, 2011, Fisher was struck by a Ford Expedition, which had run a red light, at the intersection of Broadway Boulevard and Magnolia Street.
At the time of the incident, DeLeon was covered by a Famers automobile policy, which included underinsured motorist benefits.
“Plaintiff would further show that he has complied with all terms and conditions required to recover benefits under the policy,” the suit states. “Defendant has refused … to pay plaintiff the requisite benefits under this policy.”
Fisher is suing for punitive and exemplary damages, plus attorney’s fees and court costs.
She is represented by Beaumont attorney Joe Fisher of the Provost Umphrey law firm.
Judge Gary Sanderson, 60th District Court, is assigned to the case.
Case No. B194-378
