FORT LAUDERDALE — Homeowners are suing Heritage Property & Casualty Insurance Company for alleged breach of contract.
Luce Lully and Durene Poliard filed a complaint on June 9 in the Broward County Circuit Court, alleging that the defendant breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that their property sustained a covered loss for water damage on Aug. 12, 2015 due to a broken pipe. Though the plaintiffs allegedly submitted a timely notice of the covered loss, the defendant reportedly refused and continues to refuse to pay the plaintiffs' claim.
The plaintiffs hold the defendant responsible for allegedly failing to comply with the terms of the policy and pay the full amount of the claim.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant for damages, costs, interest, attorney's fees and other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Jack Benmeleh of Militzok & Levy PA in Hollywood.
