Insurance company sues for compensation for car accident in 2020

An insurance company has filed a lawsuit against Offset, one of the founding members of Migos, regarding a car accident in Encino, Calif., which occurred nearly two years ago.

Mercury Insurance Company filed the claim in Los Angeles Superior Court. The company accuses the Atlanta native of self-negligence.

The accident happened on November 11, 2020, near the US 101 freeway.

According to Radar Online, number one “Clout” was driving a 2018 Dodge Charger when he hit Silvestre Cruz Gutierrez, who was driving his 2019 Honda Civic.

Mercury Insurance Company covers it.

Driving in the car with Gutierrez was a woman named Maria Salina Lopez. The insurance company alleges that Offset and/or the negligent driver caused the accident.

The insurance company further stated that the vehicle and the famous rapper were uninsured.

“The insurance policy described above included collision coverage, insuring the Honda for damages suffered,” Mercury Insurance said in the lawsuit before noting that Gutierrez’s car was “damaged, destroyed, depreciated, diminished in value and required repairs and towing charges in the sum of $10,605.73.

He continued, “the owners of the Honda were deprived of the use of their said vehicle to their prejudice for the sum of $1,090.27.”

According to Mercury Insurance Company, Lopez suffered serious bodily injury and emotional distress, “all of which have caused and will continue to cause great physical and mental pain and suffering, resulting in temporary and permanent disability and loss of earning capacity, resulting in loss of income, and forcing him to incur liabilities for medical expenses and other special damages.

As a result, Mercury Insurance said they paid Lopez $15,000 on the policy and added with the person who is the policyholder, they paid $26,696 — and want the rapper to pay it back.

They want to be fully reimbursed and also claim interest.
