ORLANDO – The owner of an Orlando property claims that his insurer failed to fully indemnify him for a loss.
Elvis Perez Gonzalez filed a complaint on May 18 in the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida - Orange County against American Integrity Insurance Co. of Florida alleging that the insurer breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 20, 2016, while his property was insured under a homeowner's insurance policy, it sustained a covered loss for water damage. Notwithstanding the fact that the plaintiff allegedly furnished timely notice of covered loss and has performed all obligations precedent to recover under the policy, the defendant failed to fully indemnify him for the loss, the suit states.
The plaintiff holds American Integrity Insurance Co. of Florida responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to fully indemnify the plaintiff for the subject loss, failed and/or refused to properly investigate and/or evaluate the nature and extent of plaintiff’s insurance claim, and failed to promptly pay the amounts due.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for compensatory damages, prejudgment interest, cost of action, attorney’s fees and such other and further relief as the court may deem just. He is represented by William C. Brown of WM Law Group LLP in Miami Lakes.
