ORLANDO — An Orlando property owner is suing an insurance company, alleging breach of contract.
Luis Rodriguez filed a complaint Sept. 27 in Orange County Circuit Court against Security First Insurance Company, alleging failing to provide coverage for a property loss after a hurricane.
According to the complaint, Sept. 10, 2017, Rodriguez's property at 1321 Renee Ave., Orlando, was damaged directly and/or indirectly by Hurricane Irma, requiring reasonable repairs and replacement.
Rodriguez says he gave timely notice to Security First of the loss but he has been denied of coverage despite complying with all conditions required.
The plaintiff alleges Security First Insurance failed to establish that it had reasonable proof that it was not responsible for the payment of Rodriguez's damages and/or loss, and has failed to pay the requested amounts for repairs and/or replacement, plus applicable interest, pursuant to the terms of the insurance policy.
Rodriguez seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, interest, attorney fees, costs and all other just and proper relief. He is represented by attorney Thomas J. Morgan of Morgan Law Group PA in Coral Gables.
