ORLANDO — Two homeowners are suing American Integrity Insurance Co. of Florida, citing breach of contract in connection with a hurricane damage coverage dispute.
Mei Yang and Jun Fang filed a complaint on May 16 in the Orange Circuit Court against American Integrity Insurance alleging that the insurer breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs sustained economic loss when their property was damaged on Sept. 11, 2017. Yang and Fang claim the damage from the hurricane occurred while their insurance policy was in full force and effect, but the defendant refused to provide coverage.
The plaintiffs said they hold American Integrity Insurance responsible because it allegedly obligated plaintiffs to retain and pay for the services of legal counsel to represent and protect their interests, then refused to pay the full amount of plaintiffs' insurance claim.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendant for damages, interest, costs and attorney's fees. They are represented by David R. Heil of David R. Heil PA in Winter Park.
