ORLANDO — An Orlando property owner is suing an insurance company, alleging breach of contract.
Kimberly Leszczynski filed a complaint Nov. 6 in Orange County Circuit Court against American Integrity Insurance Company of Florida, alleging the defendant breached the agreed to contract by not providing insurance coverage to Leszczynski's property against losses.
According to the complaint, on June 16, 2016, her property at 14008 Chicora Crossing Blvd., Orlando, sustained a covered loss resulting from water damages while the policy with Integrity Insurance was in full force and effect.
Leszczynski says American Integrity acknowledged coverage for the loss, inspected the property and tendered a payment of insurance proceeds to the plaintiff. However, after diligent inspection of the loss, Leszczynski says it was obvious that the property sustained damage greater than the damages acknowledged by the insurance company.
The plaintiff alleges American Integrity Insurance failed to acknowledge or deny that further payment would be forthcoming, failed to make any further payment of insurance proceeds to the insured and failed to fully indemnify Leszczynski for the damages sustained as a result of a covered loss.
Leszczynski seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, additional insurance proceeds in the correct amount of the loss, plus interest, court costs and attorney fees. She is represented by attorney S. Antonio Jimenez of Diverse Legal Solutions in Miramar.
