Illinois Farmers Insurance Company has now filed a formal complaint in DuPage County, against the county and 29 municipalities, including Naperville.
The suit, like the ones filed in Will and Cook County, claims the defendants didn’t properly handle the April 2013 flood, failing to correctly operate retention basins and sewer drains.
At the time of this taping, Naperville has not yet been served in either county.
We reached out to the city, and both counties and all declined to comment.
Farmers Insurance gave us the following statement on the lawsuits:
“Farmers has taken, what we believe is necessary action to recover payments made on behalf of our customers, for damages caused by what we believe was a completely preventable issue, as well as to prevent it from happening again.”
Farmers has filed suit in nine area counties, which also include DeKalb, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and LaSalle counties.
