FORT LAUDERDALE – The owners of a Pembroke Pines property allege their insurer did not pay an amount enough to cover damages from a roof leak.
Jose and Elizabeth Questell filed a complaint on June 14 in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida - Broward County against Tower Hill Signature Insurance Co. alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Sept. 18, 2016, their property sustained a covered loss due to an accidental intrusion of water from a roof leak. The plaintiffs allege that the defendant acknowledged the instant claim and issued two checks, but the amount is substantially less than the amount necessary to cover damages.
The plaintiffs hold Tower Hill Signature Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly breached the insurance contract by refusing to pay full benefits that the plaintiffs are entitled to.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendant for damages, attorney's fees, costs, and interest. They are represented by Daniel J. Rheaume of Welt & Rheaume PA in Hollywood.
