Win Protects Drivers and Injury Victims

After over five years of fighting a denial of coverage by an insurance company and multiple appeals, Farmer, Cline & Campbell won against the insurance company and made new law in West Virginia. In the case of Greg Allen Ball v. United Financial Casualty Company, et al., by opinion dated November 17, 2022, the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia held that when an insurance policy violates West Virginia law by denying coverage to a permissive user of an automobile, then the insurance company must provide coverage up to the full liability limits of the policy. For our client, this ruling means the difference between only $25,000 available for his personal injury claim to now having up to $1 million available for his claim.

Recent Verdict

In May of 2022, Farmer, Cline & Campbell, along with co-counsel from Beasley Allen, received a $7 million verdict for their client against Ford Motor Company in the Circuit Court of Kanawha County, West Virginia.
