PHILADELPHIA – Customers of Allstate Insurance filed a complaint stating the provider did not fulfill its contractual obligations when it denied them benefits subsequent to a financial loss they sustained at their property this past February.
Margaret Turtle and John Turtle of Philadelphia filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Oct. 17 versus Allstate Insurance Company, of Northbrook, Ill.
In the course of business, Allstate issued an insurance policy to the plaintiffs covering their property on the 300 block of Jacob Street in Philadelphia. On Feb. 25, the plaintiffs sustained a loss due to a peril as insured under the policy and gave proper notice to Allstate of said loss, they say.
However, Allstate allegedly refused, without legal justification or cause, to pay the Turtles the monies owed them as a result of the damages they sustained from the loss. Solely as a result of the defendant’s failure and refusal to pay benefits to the plaintiffs as required under the policy, plaintiffs have suffered loss and damage in an amount not in excess of $50,000, they claim.
For a count of breach of contract, the plaintiffs are seeking damages not in excess of $50,000, plus interest and costs.
The plaintiffs are represented by Mario Barnabei of the Law Offices of Jonathan Wheeler, in Philadelphia.
