CLEARWATER – Palm Bay property owners allege that their insurer only partially paid their loss claim.
Delles Marshall and George Marshall filed a complaint on May 23 in the 6th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida - Pinellas County against First Community Insurance Co. alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Oct. 14, 2016, their Palm Bay property sustained a loss caused by wind. The suit states the defendant estimated damages at $8,580.68 but has only paid $1,844.06.
The plaintiffs hold First Community Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly only paid a portion of the loss.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek all damages allowable under Florida law, including all applicable coverages and policy benefits, interest, fees, costs, such other and further relief as the court deems appropriate. They are represented by Jason A. Herman of Herman and Wells PA in Pinellas Park.
