Homeowner with defective vehicle receives $2,000 home warranty
The homeowner who was forced to pay more than $2 million to cover the damage to his truck in an incident that killed a passenger and injured the driver says the damage is just the beginning.
Juan Manuel Lopez, who owns a home in a predominantly Mexican-American community on the southern border, has been fighting to have his vehicle repaired, but the damage was not covered under his warranty.
He has filed suit against his insurance company, which has been paying $2.7 million to repair the vehicle.
The $2 billion is part of a $9.3 billion settlement in the civil case.
Lopez told Breitbart News that he was the driver of the truck that was involved in a crash in October, killing the driver and injuring the passenger.
The collision occurred when Lopez was backing up a friend of his.
The truck was in the middle of the street, the driver was pinned between the truck and a building, Lopez said.
The driver died of head trauma, but Lopez said he suffered multiple broken bones and a broken nose.
The passenger was not injured, Lopez added.
The company was not immediately available for comment.
Lincoln Insurance said the truck was insured under its Homeowner’s Warranty program, which covers damaged or damaged goods.
Liliana Martinez, a spokesperson for Lincoln Insurance, told Breitbart that the company has a wide range of policies covering all types of property, but that “a significant percentage of our policies are not covered for any damage caused by the accident.”
Lincoln, which also covers a few other cars in the region, has a policy that covers damage to a vehicle from being hit by a vehicle.
The settlement was reached after the two parties had a settlement conference.
The settlement includes a $1 million payment for Lopez’s medical bills, as well as a $2-million payment for the insurance company’s expenses.
