FORT LAUDERDALE — Two Fort Lauderdale homeowners are suing an insurance company, alleging breach of contract.
Lilach Gutman and Saar Gutman filed a complaint April 25 in Broward County Circuit Court against National General Insurance Company, alleging the defendant failed to pay for damages caused by a hurricane.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 10, 2017, the Gutmans made a claim for the loss and damages of their dwelling at 3750 SW 51st St., Fort Lauderdale due to Hurricane Irma as the policy included coverage for such type of incident. The Gutmans say they timely notified the defendant and performed all conditions precedent under the policy.
However, the Gutmans allege National General has refused and continues to refuse to fully pay the claim for damages. As a result, the Gutmans sustained damages in the amount of their insurance benefits that are due under terms of the policy.
The plaintiffs allege National General Insurance has failed to pay the amount of the loss and refuses to pay the coverage which is due and owing.
The Gutmans seek trial by jury, all damages of more than $15,000, excluding attorney fees, statutory interests and court costs. They are represented by attorneys David C. LaValle and Darren Zipris of Zipris Lavalle PA in North Miami.
