* Ball seeks compensation for "life-altering injuries" and other damages suffered from an April 2007 single-vehicle accident off U.S. 119 near Danville.

Sharon Davis vs. Albert R. Cooper, State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co and Cathi Thompson
PA-Harry M. Hatfield; J-Thompson
* Davis, from Logan County, was driving a borrowed Jeep on W.Va. 10 near King Shoals when an early-morning three-vehicle accident occurred in September 2006. Her vehicle was behind another Jeep that was hit by a pickup driven by Cooper. His truck then hit Davis' vehicle. She was offered a $100,000 bodily injury settlement by Nationwide Mutual. The vehicle she drove was owned by Shane Wallace, who had State Farm insurance while Davis had coverage with Allstate. She accepted Nationwide's settlement. Davis "forwarded a demand package" to State Farm, claiming State Farm and employee Thompson's "failure to respond to the demands for settlement" violates the state Unfair Claims Settlement Practices Act.
