LOS ANGELES – An insurance firm is suing a government entity for damages after an employee allegedly caused an accident with its client.
State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. filed a complaint on July 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against United States Postal Service, Medik Baban and Does 1-10 alleging that they failed to control his vehicle causing damages to plaintiff's insured individual.
