NEW ORLEANS – A St. Tammany Parish motorist alleges that damages she received in two collisions exceeded limits of the drivers' insurance policies.
Michelle Zahn filed a complaint for money damages on June 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co.
