By David Yates | Jan 30, 2019

BEAUMONT – Recently filed court records show Allstate Fire and Casualty was non-suited from a lawsuit a month after a jury delivered a verdict of more than $183,000 in damages against the insurance company.

Seeking up to $100,000 in damages, Kenneth Gerber filed suit against Allstate on March 8, 2017, in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the original petition, in December 2015 Gerber was injured in a motor vehicle collision allegedly caused by the negligence of another motorist.

Gerber made a claim with Allstate for underinsured motorist benefits, which the company refused to pay, the suit states.

The case was called up for trial late last year.  

A jury awarded Gerber $127,500 for his past mental anguish, $10,000 for his past impairment, $44,045 for his past medical care and $1,900 for his past lost wages, according to the charge of the court, filed Dec. 4.  

Court records show that on Dec. 28, Gerber filed a notice of non-suit.

On Jan. 4, Judge Kent Walston, 58th District Court, signed off on an order of non-suit, dismissing the cause with prejudice.

Gerber is represented by Adam Terrell, attorney for the Beaumont law firm Weller, Green, Toups & Terrell.

Case No. A-199712
