Memorial-area printer sues after fire puts him out of business
A Memorial business owner is suing his insurer after a fire put him out of business.
Charles Khoei, individually and as Print-O-Graph, filed a lawsuit on April 21 in the Harris County District Court against Truck Insurance Exchange and Farmers Insurance Co. alleging, among other things, violations of the Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
Small business owner Khoei says that on Dec. 13, 2009, his printing shop, located at 10908 Westheimer Road in Memorial, burnt down when a fire in a nearby business spread to his building. According to the brief, the defendant insurers delayed Khoei’s estimated payouts and refused to fully cover his actual damages, which caused him unnecessary mental anguish.
Khoei is seeking all damages to which he is entitled, attorney’s fees and court costs. He is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Allan Levine.
Harris County District Court Case No. 2011-24570.
