ORLANDO — An Orlando property owner is suing a licensed insurer, alleging breach of an insurance policy.
Evangelista Padilla filed a complaint Dec. 20 in Orange County Circuit Court against Florida Peninsula insurance Company, alleging failure to honor its contractual obligation and pay for the damages to the plaintiff's insured property.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 9, 2017, Padilla's insured property at 12406 Bohannon Blvd., Orlando, suffered a covered loss due to a plumbing leak or break in the kitchen.
Padilla says she provided the defendant with timely notice of the loss and the damage estimate of $32,116.98. The plaintiff alleges Florida Peninsula Insurance has rejected the total amount of damages and completely denied any coverage.
Padilla seeks trial by jury, damages greater than $15,000, exclusive of interest, court costs and attorney fees. She is represented by attorneys Hunter Patterson, Alicia Perez and Michael Patrick of Strems Law Firm in Orlando.
