ORLANDO — Two Orlando property owners are suing an insurance company, alleging breach of contract.
Jose Maldonado and Omayra Velazquez filed a complaint Dec. 20 in Orange County Circuit Court against Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, alleging failure to provide insurance coverage after the plaintiffs sustained a covered loss.
According to the complaint, on March 20, 2018, the property of Maldonado and Velazquez at 667 Golden Sunshine Circle, Orlando, was damaged directly and/or indirectly by hail. The suit says the hail damage required reasonable necessary repairs and replacements, as well as appropriate cleaning and remedial measures.
The plaintiffs say they gave timely notice to Liberty Mutual of the loss and have complied with all conditions precedent to receiving coverage. However, despite assigning a claim number to identify the loss, the suit states, the defendant did not provide payment pursuant to the terms of the policy.
The plaintiffs allege Liberty Mutual Insurance has failed to establish that it was not responsible for payment of the plaintiffs' damages and/or loss, and has failed to pay the requested amounts for repairs and/or replacement.
Maldonado and Velazquez seek trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, interest, attorney fees, court costs and all other just and proper relief. They are represented by attorney Thomas J. Morgan, Jr. of Morgan Law Group PA in Coral Gables.
