Landlord sues insurance company citing failure to pay claim

By Noddy A. Fernandez | Jan 31, 2019

HUNTINGTON — A property owner is suing an insurance company, citing alleged breach of contract.

Abrahim Tahmasbi filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against State Farm Insurance alleging that it unfairly denied his claim of insurance coverage.

According to the complaint, on Jan. 17, 2018, Tahmasbi's claim for insurance coverage as a result of vandalism by a tenant was allegedly denied by State Farm. Tahmasbi claims after going back and forth during the process, State Farm continues to delay the process in order to avoid providing coverage. 

He also alleges his case was sent to at least three other states instead by State Farm, which took a great deal of his time and energy. 

The plaintiff holds State Farm Insurance responsible because it allegedly delayed, denied and dragged on his claims for insurance coverage and deceived and diverted attention from the damage to the interior of the house as the result of vandalism by the tenant.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for compensatory and general damages in excess of $15,000 and for such other and further relief as the Court deems just and equitable.
