CLEARWATER — Largo property owners are suing Federated National, alleging breach of an insurance contract.
Eric Koroknay and Brooke Koroknay filed a complaint Oct. 25 Pinellas County Circuit Court against Federated National Insurance Company, alleging breach of good faith and fair dealings in covering damage from Hurricane Irma.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 10, the Koroknays suffered damages on their insured property's roof 10443 96th St. N, Largo, brought by Hurricane Irma. The suit says the insured property also sustained interior water damage as a result of storm-generated openings and also sustained damage to a fence and screening.
Although covered by the terms of the insurance policy provided by Federated, the plaintiffs have not receive the full benefits under the policy. The plaintiffs alleges Federated National Insurance has failed to pay for the damages that are covered under the insurance policy and failed to honor its contractual obligations for the loss and claim.
The Koroknays seek trial by jury, judgment against defendant of more than $15,000, court costs, prejudgment interest and attorney fees. They are represented by attorney Jeremy R. Griner of Tampa.
