Texas Homeowner's Lawsuit: 'My House Caught Fire & Casualty Insurer Is Stiffing Me On My Damage Claim!'

In Jefferson County, Texas, The Southeast Texas Record reports:

  • A Jefferson County man claims his insurance company refuses to compensate him for damages his property sustained in a fire.

    Michael Meeks filed a lawsuit June 15 in Jefferson County District Court against Texas Farmers Insurance Co. In his complaint, Meeks alleges he owned an insurance policy issued by Texas Farmers when his home at 3831 Fourth St. in Port Arthur caught on fire on June 18, 2010. The fire damaged the interior and exterior of the property, and Meeks filed a claim for damages, according to the complaint.

    However, Farmers denied Meeks's claim, saying it was not covered under the policy, the suit states. Meeks insists the fire was a covered occurrence.
