MOUNDSVILLE — A Wheeling couple is suing Allstate, alleging breach of an insurance policy.
Crystal Thompson and Michael Thompson filed a complaint in Marshall Circuit Court against Allstate Property and Casualty Insurance Company, alleging failure to cover damage caused by heavy winds.
According to the complaint, on Jan. 23, the Thompsons' home at 868 Pine Hill Road, Wheeling, was damaged by a severe storm and strong winds. At the time of the incident, the suit says, all premiums due and owing were paid in a timely fashion, and Allstate's policy was in full force and effect.
The plaintiffs allege Allstate Property and Casualty Insurance has denied full coverage to the Thompsons' damaged home, alleging the storm was not the cause of the damage.
The Thompsons seeks trial by jury, compensatory and punitive damages, attorney fees, costs and expenses. They are represented by attorneys Scott S. Blass and Erica A. Cross of Bordas & Bordas PLLC in Wheeling.
