GALVESTON — A Galveston County woman is suing an auto insurance company, alleging it owes as much as $100,000 for breach of contract. 

Melinda Doolittle filed a lawsuit Sept. 12 in Galveston County District Court against Safe Auto Insurance Company alleging failure to comply with its contractual obligation.

According to the complaint, on Jan. 1, Doolittle sustained injuries in a motor vehicle collision, in which an underinsured driver ran a red light and struck her vehicle. The suit says Doolittle failed to collect damages pursuant to the insurance policy, causing her to suffer loss of policy benefits and mental anguish. 

The plaintiff alleges Safe Auto Insurance has and continues to refuse to pay her benefits under the policy.

Doolittle seeks trial by jury, and monetary relief of up to $100,000, including damages, penalties, court costs, expenses, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney fees and all other relief. She is represented by attorneys Clayton Rawlings and Keith Hampton of Hampton & Rawlings in Houston.
