PHILADELPHIA – Plaintiffs who possessed an insurance policy from Allstate claim the company didn’t follow through on its coverage agreement after their property sustained an unspecified loss.
Patrick Bolger and Julie Bolger of Wayne filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Sept. 26 versus Allstate Vehicle and Property Insurance Company, of Northbrook, Ill.
The Bolgers were policyholders of the defendant company, having been issued a policy covering a premises on the 700 block of Worthington Road in Wayne. On or about May 2 of this year, while the policy was in effect, the plaintiffs say they suffered a “direct physical loss and damage to the insured property, believed to be the result of a peril insured against under the policy.”
The Bolgers say they properly notified Allstate of the loss and complied with all of the relevant policy’s terms and conditions, but to date have not been compensated by the company.
“Solely as a result of defendant’s failure and refusal to pay benefits to plaintiffs as required under the policy, plaintiffs have suffered loss and damage in an amount not in excess of $50,000,” the complaint states.
For counts of breach of contract and bad faith, the plaintiffs are seeking damages not in excess of $50,000, plus interest, court costs, attorney’s fees and delay damages.
The plaintiff is represented by Mario Barnabei of the Law Offices of Jonathan Wheeler, in Philadelphia.
