MOUNDSVILLE — A McMechen couple is suing Lexington Insurance Co. for alleged breach of contract.
John A. Hamilton and Jacqueline Hamilton had an insurance policy through Lexington when they experienced a flood that caused damage to their home on July 28, 2017, according to a complaint filed in Marshall Circuit Court.
Despite acknowledging that the loss was a covered loss under their policy, Lexington only provided the Hamiltons with $2,931.81 when their losses were approximately $20,000, according to the suit.
The Hamiltons claim they rejected the check because it did not cover their losses and damages and that by not paying the full amount of their damages, the defendant breached its contract with them.
The Hamiltons are seeking damages to cover their losses. They are represented by Joseph John of The John & Werner Law Offices in Wheeling.
Marshall Circuit Court case number 19-C-158
