ORLANDO — A property owner is suing Universal Property & Casualty Insurance Company for alleged breach of contract.
Neuclon Young filed a complaint on July 17 in the Orange County Circuit Court, alleging that the defendant breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that her insured property was damaged on March 10 due to a pipe break. However, the defendant allegedly has refused to provide coverage despite a timely claim filed by the plaintiff.
The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly causing the plaintiff financial damage, and for allegedly breaching its insurance contract by failing to fully and promptly pay fully the amounts due.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant to pay in full the contract of insurance, award actual and compensatory damages, pre-judgment interest, costs of action, attorney’s fees and any further relief the court deems appropriate. She is represented by Andrew P. McDonald and David D. Barnhill of McDonald & Barnhill PA in Tampa.
