Horror writer Stephen King, 53, has sued his insurance company for $10 million, claiming that Commercial Union York Insurance Co. failed to provide full coverage for injuries he suffered when a van hit him in western Maine two years ago, reports Reuters. The suit was filed last week in Penobscot County Superior Court, Maine. King and his wife, Tabitha, are seeking the umbrella policy's $10 million limit, plus interest of 1.5% per month, said their lawyer, Warren M. Silver, who pointed out that the figure falls well below that of Kings's physical and financial damages, which are estimated to be between $65 million and $75 million.
