PITTSBURGH — A Kentucky company is suing National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, alleging breach of contract.
Ashland LLC filed a complaint on Nov. 7, in the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County against National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, alleging that the insurance company failed to provide full coverage to the plaintiff.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Ashland sustained monetary damages due to out-of-pocket expenses in connection with lawsuits from users of Ashland's gel fuel who say they were injured from fires or explosions.
The plaintiff holds National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to reimburse the plaintiff for the costs it paid above the retained limit.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in the amount that exceeds $35,000, compensatory damages, interest, court costs and any further relief this court grants. It is represented by John M. Sylvester and Melissa J. Tea of K&L Gates LLP in Pittsburgh.
