ORLANDO — Two Orlando homeowners are suing an insurance, alleging breach of n insurance contract.
Rebecca and Warren Henderson filed a complaint May 25 in Orange County Circuit Court against United Property & Casualty Insurance Company, alleging failure to cover roof damages caused by high winds.
According to the complaint, on Jan. 15, 2016, the Henderson's property at 3028 Riverdale Road, Orlando suffered direct, physical damage, due to a strong wind that created a roof opening. The suit says this caused rain to enter and damage their home.
Although United Property has admitted that the loss is covered and has made a partial payment under the policy, the Henderson say it is not enough to cover all the losses.
The plaintiffs allege United Property & Casualty Insurance has failed to consider and pay the Hendersons for the entirety of damages, and failed to provide them with coverage, in accordance with the policy, for the remainder of damages stemming from the loss.
The Hendersons seek trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000 for any additional relief as permitted by law and as the court deems appropriate, including interest, costs, attorney fees and all equitable remedies or relief. They are represented by attorney Tracey Foglia of Florida Professional Law Group PLLC in Hollywood, Florida.
