WVC 33 - 17 A- 9 §33-17A-9. Civil liability and actions.

(a) If the commissioner determines in a final order that an insurer has violated section five or six of this article, the applicant or named insured aggrieved by the violation may bring an action in a court of competent jurisdiction in this state to recover from the insurer any loss, not otherwise recovered through insurance, which would have been paid under the insurance coverage that was declined or terminated in violation of this article.

(b) Any amount recovered under subsection (a) of this section may not be duplicative of any recovery obtained through the exercise of any other statutory or common law cause of action arising out of the same occurrence. No action under this section may be brought two years after the date of a final order of the commissioner finding a violation of section five or six of this article.
