"I'd rather people hear it from me. I don't want it to be twisted, a court document. I want it to be real and authentic."

"I want to control the narrative. I want people to know from me," she said.

She said the lawsuit has been a grueling process.

"My house was severely damaged. You walked in and it just reeked of smoke. I tried - I communicated with my insurance company. I called, I got passed around, claims adjuster to claims adjuster."

Doherty hopes she is remembered for her battle against State Farm.

"I think the thing I want to do the most right now is make an impact. I can through this lawsuit and by saying enough is enough with big business and corporations running the little person into the ground."

"It's not fair and I'm taking a stand for all of us but it's more about how I want to be remembered for something bigger than just me," she said.
