Here’s one for Grand Prairie insurance lawyers handling uninsured motorist (UM) cases. It is from the Corpus Christi Court of Appeals and is styled, In Re Farmers Texas County Mutual Insurance Company.
This case arose from a wreck with an UM driver. The real party in interest, Luzminda Llasos brought suit against her auto insurance carrier, Farmers, for UM benefits. Llasos sued Farmers for breach of contract, violations of the Prompt Pay Act, and violations of the Texas Insurance Code, Section 541.060. Her original lawsuit papers incorporated written discovery consisting of fifteen interrogatories, twenty-six requests for production, and thirty requests for admission.
Farmers filed a motion to sever and abate Llasos’s extra-contractual claims form the underling UM claim.
