Driver Initially Denied Uninsured Motorist Claim

Posted on Friday, February 8th, 2019

Terese Latham was driving down SR-600 when an uninsured motorist collided with her vehicle. The motorist had no insurance, so Latham filed a claim with her insurance company, USAA Casualty Insurance Company, under her uninsured/underinsured motorist benefits. USAA Casualty Insurance Company denied her request for compensation for her permanent bodily injuries and damage to her vehicle. She filed a complaint, arguing that USAA Casualty Insurance Company breached their contract by failing to fulfill its obligation to honor her claim. Latham turned to Coker Law for justice. Attorneys Howard Coker and Dan Iracki fought USAA Casualty Insurance Company so Latham could receive the benefits she rightfully deserved. The jury determined that USAA Casualty Insurance Company should pay for Latham’s losses, resulting in an award of $422,672.
