Woman Sues Nationwide for Breach of Contact

A Charleston woman is suing Nationwide General Insurance Company after she claims it breached its contract with her. There was a fire at a property owned by Linda Blevins. The fire caused property damage. The complaint was filed in Logan Circuit Court on June 19th and was moved up to federal court July 24th. Blevins claims that her policy was in full effect the day of the fire. Nationwide issued a reservation of rights letter to the plaintiff. Some petroleum distillate was found in samples from her property. Her policy specifically excluded increased hazards and intentional acts. Blevins stated that Nationwide has no evidence to say that she contributed to an increased hazard on her property. Blevins is seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interest.
