Driver and insurance company sued after accident

By Philip Gonzales | Nov 23, 2018

NEW CUMBERLAND — A motorist is suing Daniel L. Hazlip and Permanent General Assurance Corp., an insurer, citing alleged breach of contract and negligence.

Zachary Dieguez filed a complaint in Hancock Circuit Court, against the defendants alleging that Permanent Assurance failed to settle his claim for the under-insured motorist coverage in the amount of $25,000.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 23, 2017, he was injured in a motor vehicle accident when Hazlip's vehicle struck the rear of his vehicle. 

He suffered extensive injuries resulting in pain, mental anguish, inconvenience and medical expenses in the amount of $3,079.71, along with lost wages of $1,500. The plaintiff holds Hazlip and Permanent General Assurance responsible, because Hazlip allegedly failed to stop before colliding with plaintiff's vehicle.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in excess of the jurisdictional limits of the court and within the limits of his under-insured motorist coverage. 

He is represented by James J. Sellitti of Sellitti Nogay & McCune PLLC in Weirton.
