WVC 6-12-2 §6-12-2. Policy may authorize action against insurance company with or without joining driver as defendant.
Any insurance policy obtained in pursuance of the provisions of section one of this article may, by agreement between the insurance company issuing the policy and the officer, board, commission or agency applying for such insurance, contain a provision authorizing an action on such policy to be maintained against the insurance company issuing the policy by or in the name of any person sustaining bodily injury or property damage, either with or without joining the driver of such motor vehicle as a party defendant, or in the name of the personal representative of a deceased person, the proximate cause of whose death was the negligence of the driver. Such provision shall be valid and enforceable if set forth in the body of the policy or in a rider attached to the policy as a part thereof.
