Motorist alleges insurer failed to pay for crash damages

By Jenie Mallari-Torres | Jul 10, 2018

ORLANDO — A motorist is suing an insurer, alleging breach of an insurance contract.

Catherine Navarro filed a complaint June 25 in Orange County Circuit Court against Integon Preferred Insurance Company, alleging failure to pay benefits in a car crash. 

According to the complaint, on Dec. 8, 2016, Navarro was driving north on Lockwood Boulevard in Orange County when her car was rear-ended by a vehicle driven by Summer Giovagnorio, who was insured by Integon. The suit says Navarro sustained pain and suffering, impairment, disability, brain damage, inconvenience, loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish, loss of earnings and incurred medical expenses.

The suit says Integon has failed to pay uninsured motorist coverage benefits. 

The plaintiff alleges Integon Preferred Insurance breached its obligation to pay benefits against the terms of the uninsured/underinsured motorist policy, and required Navarro to retain the services of an attorney to represent and protect her legal interest.

Navarro seeks trial by jury, compensatory damages in excess of $15,000, exclusive of costs, interest, and all other just relief. She is represented by attorney Christopher Genca Fontana of Law Offices of Fontana & Associates PA in Orlando.
