FORT LAUDERDALE — A Broward County property owner is suing an insurance company, alleging breach of contract.
Simone Ramanand of Miramar filed a complaint Sept. 25 in Broward Circuit Court against Olympus Insurance Company, alleging the insurer failed to cover property damages, breaching good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, on June 7 Ramanand's insured dwelling at 13200 SW 50th St., Miramar suffered water damage due to a roof leak that caused damages to the building, structures and property. Although Ramanand says she provided timely notice of the loss, the amount paid by the defendant was insufficient to perform the necessary repairs.
The plaintiff alleges Olympus Insurance caused unreasonable delay in evaluating the full costs of damages, and failed to pay Ramanand the adequate amount of policy benefits to cover all losses.
Ramanand seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, plus court costs, interest and attorney fees. She is represented by attorney David Low of David Low & Associates PA in Fort Lauderdale.
