CHARLESTON – A woman is suing her insurance company alleging that the value of her trailer has been listed as too low.
Diana Moss filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Erie Insurance alleging bad faith.
The suit states that the plaintiff is seeking to settle an insurance claim regarding the value of a horse trailer. She alleges the trailer manufacturer is out of business and dealers have told her there are no estimates on horse trailers.
The plaintiff alleges dealers instructed her to find a similar or identical trailer to compare for estimation purposes, and she alleges she located a similar trailer in Texas for $104,623.
The suit states the defendant's adjuster, Mike Walker, said the market value of her trailer is $71,450. She alleges this estimate was made in bad faith and is below its true value, and Walker has failed to try to negotiate a settlement.
The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is representing herself.
The case has been assigned to Judge Tod Kaufman.
