James Oreluk and Gayle Oreluk filed a complaint Oct. 12 in Orange County Circuit Court against Fednat Insurance Company, formerly known as Federal National Insurance Company, alleging failure to perform under the terms of the policy.

According to the complaint, on Sept. 10, 2017, the Oreluk insured property at15635 Braintree Lane, Winter Garden, was damaged by Hurricane Irma. The plaintiffs say they timely notified Fednat with a full and particular account of their expenses and losses as a result of the hurricane.
