Woman says Farmers Insurance didn’t cover as promised

A Galveston County woman is suing an insurance company over claims the defendant failed to provide the coverage promised in her insurance policy.

Shellie Hoops filed a lawsuit Dec. 29, 2014, in Galveston County District Court against Texas Farmers Insurance Company, citing underpayment for damage to her home from a water leak.

According to the complaint, on June 7, 2014, a sudden discharge of water on Hoops’ property in LaMarque caused severe damage. The suit alleges an adjuster for the company misrepresented the cause and scope of the damage, the amount it would cost to repair it and the plaintiff’s coverage under the policy, resulting in an underpayment that has not allowed Hoops to make needed repairs to the property.

Hoops seeks between $100,000 and $200,000 in damages plus attorney fees and other damages. She is represented by attorney Ben Doherty of Speights & Worrich in San Antonio.
