ORLANDO — Two Orlando homeowners are suing an insurer, alleging breach of an insurance contract.
Amadeu Do Canto and Maria Do Canto filed a complaint Nov. 29 in Orange County Circuit Court against Florida Peninsula Insurance Company, alleging failure to pay for hurricane damage.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 11, 2017, the De Cantos sustained damages to their insured property at 1631 Burryport Drive, Orlando, as a result of Hurricane Irma. Although the plaintiffs promptly provided notice of the loss, the suit says, the defendant declined to fully indemnify the Do Cantos for the value of their claim under the terms of the policy.
The plaintiffs allege Florida Peninsula Insurance obligated the Do Cantos to retain counsel to bring legal action.
The Do Cantos seek trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, including real and personal property damages, additional living expenses, attorney fees, court costs and prejudgment interest. They are represented by attorney Chad J. Robinson of Boca Raton.
