ORLANDO — An Orlando homeowner is suing State Farm, alleging breach of contract.
Vincent DeSantis filed a complaint Dec. 1 in Orange County Circuit Court against State Farm Florida Insurance Company, alleging the insurer failed to cover damages caused by Hurricane Irma.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 10, 2017, he sustained covered damages to his property at 10112 Dean Chase Blvd., Orlando as a result of the hurricane while his State Farm insurance policy was in full force and effect. Although DeSantis says he has complied with all conditions to entitle him to recover payment under the policy, State Farm has refused to pay for all of his losses.
The plaintiff alleges State Farm Florida breached the contract by refusing to pay for all of DeSantis' losses, and obligated the plaintiff to retain and pay for legal counsel.
DeSantis seeks trial by jury, all covered losses, with interest, overdue payments, damages from breach of contract of at least $15,000 and attorney fees. He is represented by attorney Gregory M. Krak of The Nation Law Firm LLP in Longwood.
