Orlando homeowners allege denial of insurance coverage after hurricane

By Noddy A. Fernandez | Dec 4, 2018

ORLANDO — An Orlando couple is suing an insurance company, alleging breach of contract.

Mark Stevene Meade and Jasta Meade filed a complaint Nov. 20 in Orange County Circuit Court against United Property & Casualty Insurance Company, alleging failure to honor and comply with its contractual obligations pursuant to the policy.

According to the complaint, on Sept. 10, 2017, after the passing of Hurricane Irma, the Meades noticed moisture intrusion in the garage and in the living room of their home at 10536 Wittenberg Way, Orlando, and were concerned that the roof was damaged. 

The Meades say they timely reported the loss to United Property and received an assigned claim but were denied coverage despite complying with all provisions required under the insurance policy. 

The plaintiffs allege United Property & Casualty Insurance failed to indemnify and compensate the Meades' loss, and has, instead, denied the claim, violating the policy.

The Meades seek trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, attorney fees, court costs, prejudgment interest, and all just and proper relief. They are represented by attorney Aaron S. Bass of Silver, Bass, Brams & Daniels PA in West Palm Beach.
