ORLANDO — A Orlando homeowner is suing a licensed insurer, alleging a delayed payment.
Yacoub Alsaka filed a complaint Nov. 20 in Orange County Circuit Court against American Integrity Insurance Company of Florida, alleging refusal to send payments to cover hurricane damages.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 11, 2017, Alsaka's property at 9926 River Crest Court, Orlando, sustained damages caused by high wind, water, rain, and/or hail from Hurricane Irma. Alsaka says he sustained structural damage, damage to contents and the loss of use of the property.
The plaintiff alleges American Integrity Insurance has failed and refused to pay the benefits necessary to repair Alsaka's property, to repair or replace the damaged contents and failed to provide alternative accommodations while the property is not fit to live in.
Alsaka seeks trial by jury, damages exceeding $15,000, exclusive of attorney fees, interest and costs. He is represented by attorney Joseph M. DeFranco of Altamonte Springs.
