ORLANDO — An Orlando resident resident is suing an insurance carrier, alleging breach of contract.

Jodi Hodges filed a complaint April 3 in Orange County Circuit Court against Security First Insurance Company, alleging failure to provide full coverage for hurricane damages. 

According to the complaint, on Sept. 10, 2017, while Hodges' property's insurance policy was in full force and effect, her home at 831 Naples Drive, Orlando, suffered a sudden and accidental loss from wind and water damage as a result of Hurricane Irma. However, the suit says, Security First has paid a mere fraction of the actual cash value of the loss. 

The plaintiff alleges Security First Insurance has refused to pay the remaining damage after the initial payment, ignored Hodges' demand for payment and failed to pay at least the true actual cash value of the loss.

Hodges seeks trial by jury, damages in excess of $15,000, interest, attorney fees, court costs and al other just relief. She is represented by attorney Joseph W. Ligman of Ligman Martin PL in Palmetto Bay.
