CHARLESTON — A Mingo County woman is suing her insurance plan administrators, alleging breach of insurance contract after she was injured in a car crash.
Katherine White filed a lawsuit Jan. 4 in Kanawha Circuit Court against Standard Laboratories Inc. and Benefit Assistance Corp., alleging failure to provide a copy of the insurance contract.
According to the complaint, on June 7, 2010, White was injured in an automobile accident. Subsequently she was referred to a course of physical therapy for the total amount of $21,389, the suit says.
As a result of the exorbitant charges, the lawsuit states, White was forced to file a lawsuit for compensation regarding her injuries sustained in the crash. The plaintiff alleges the defendants made demands for subrogation and refused to reduce or compromise their claim for subrogation.
White seeks trial by jury, judgment in an amount that will adequately compensate her for her claims, pre- and post-judgment interest, costs of court and all other proper relief. She is represented by attorney William M. Tiano of Tiano O'Dell PLLC in Charleston.
