Case number: 10-C-244
Betty Bell vs. Madison Insurance Agency, Inc.; F. Marlene Walker; Shawn Walker; and Encompass Insurance Co.
PA- Frank T. Litton Jr.; J- Thompson
* Bell claims her deceased spouse, Robert L. Bell Sr., purchased automobile insurance from the Defendants, which was in full force Jan. 1, 2008, when he was fatally injured in an auto accident. Mrs. Bell was a passenger and she was also injured in the wreck attributed to the other vehicle involved. She made a claim for underinsured motorist coverage she says was included in the Bells' policy. But Defendant insurers and agents presented her with a new policy they say was purchased in July 2008, according to the complaint, and a document backdated to February 2006 purported to affect underinsured motorist coverage. A question ensued about existence of such coverage. Bell demands jury trial, with one count of her complaint accusing Defendants, "both jointly and severally," of fraud. She wants compensatory damages, together with pre- and post-judgment interest, litigation costs, punitive damages, and such other relief deemed appropriate.
