A woman who sued her auto insurer for $2 million over a house that she paid $4,000 to insure
A woman has filed a lawsuit against her auto insurance company after she allegedly paid $2,000 for a $4.5 million house that was never insured.
The woman, who goes by the name Jane Doe, filed a complaint against Covid-19-immune auto insurer American Insurance Co. in January, alleging the company covered her loss of home value when her insurer dropped her car coverage.
Jane Doe, who lives in suburban Detroit, says she has a $500,000 mortgage, and has paid $1,000 a month in premium payments on the $4 million house.
She says she paid for her home by selling her old house to a third party.
Jane said her husband, who is a U.S. Army veteran, is retired and the house is not insured.
Jane says her insurance company dropped her coverage after it found out she was pregnant with a child.
Jane’s attorney, Michael Cusick, said in a statement that Jane Doe is a veteran who lost her home because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Covid-69 has claimed the lives of more than 200,000 people worldwide and infected an estimated 5 million.
Cusick said Jane Doe has filed multiple complaints with the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs and the Department’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau about her car insurance policy, including claims for medical bills, car expenses, and lost income.
Jane also is suing Covid and American for failing to cover the loss of value that she and her husband incurred because of a home insurance policy they purchased when she was still pregnant with her first child.
American said in an emailed statement to ABC News that it had “not reviewed any of the claims filed by Jane Doe.”
Covids response to Jane Doe’s claim was not immediately available.
