ORLANDO — An individual is suing Allstate Insurance Company for alleged breach of contract.
Andrew Silver filed a complaint on Aug. 15 in the Orange County Circuit Court, alleging that the insurer breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he was in a automobile accident with an uninsured/underinsured motorist on Jan. 12, 2016. The plaintiff claims that he provided the defendant with a timely notice of the accident and proof of the claim for damages. However, the defendant allegedly denied that coverage exists and/or refused to pay him for the full value of the claim.
The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly forcing him to retain and pay for legal counsel and for allegedly failing to provide a reasonable explanation for denying coverage.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for damages against the defendant and any further relief deemed proper by the court. He is represented by Joseph H. Shaughnessy of Morgan & Morgan PA in Orlando.
