FORT LAUDERDALE – The owner of a Miramar property claims that his insurer failed to pay full coverage for damages caused by water to the property.
Vancard McIntosh filed a complaint on May 18 in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida - Broward County against United Property & Casualty Insurance Co. alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 3, 2015, while his property was insured under a homeowner's insurance policy, it sustained a covered loss for water damage. However, despite efforts of plaintiff to furnish timely notice of covered loss, the defendant allegedly has denied coverage and only paid a small partial payment.
The plaintiff holds United Property & Casualty Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly breached its contractual and statutory duty to properly investigate, adjust, settle and pay plaintiff for a covered insurance claim.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for all damages, including consequential damages, attorney's fees, costs and further relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Jonathan Korin of Korin Law PA in Miami.
