PHILADELPHIA – A prominent insurance provider has brought legal action against a local motorist it believes was liable for vehicular damages sustained by one of its policyholders.

Progressive Specialty Insurance of Mayfield Heights, Ohio filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on June 20 versus Marcus Holland of Philadelphia.

Progressive says it issued an insurance policy to an unnamed insured, when, on March 6, 2016, Holland was supposedly the cause of a motor vehicle collision at the intersection of 50th Street and Spruce Street, in Philadelphia.

Progressive alleges Holland failed to have his motor vehicle under proper control, traveled too fast for the roadway conditions and was generally negligent under the circumstances, among other charges.

“As a direct and proximate result of defendant’s negligence, the plaintiff’s insured vehicle sustained property damage and/or incurred rental charges in the total amount of $17,301.22. Pursuant to the insurance policy issued by plaintiff and as a result of the aforesaid payment, plaintiff became subrogated to the claim of its insured against defendant,” the lawsuit states.

Progressive is seeking judgment against the defendant in the amount of $17,301.22, plus interest and costs in this matter.

The plaintiff is represented by Benjamin W. Lawrence and Michael J. Dougherty of Weltman, Weinberg & Reis Co., in Philadelphia.
