ORLANDO — An Orlando property owner is suing an insurance carrier, alleging breach of contract.
Felipe S. Soto filed a complaint April 3 in Orange County Circuit Court against Security First Insurance Company, alleging the carrier failed to pay for damages caused by a hurricane.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 10, 2017, Soto's property at 6601 Precourt Drive, Orlando, was damaged by Hurricane Irma. The suit says Soto has been financially damaged and continues to suffer damage and los, as a result of Security First's refusal to provide coverage for the sudden and accidental damage to the exterior and interior of his dwelling.
The plaintiff alleges Security First Insurance has failed to provide coverage for the full value of his claim under the insurance policy and has failed to pay promptly the amounts due.
Soto seeks trial by jury, actual and compensatory damages of more than $15,000, plus pre-judgment interest, attorney fees, costs of action and all other relief the court deems appropriate. He is represented by attorney Ramon J. Diego of Law Office of Ramon J. Diego PA in Miami.
