CLEARWATER — A property owner is suing United Property & Casualty Insurance Company, a licensed insurer, citing alleged breach of contract.
Adam Beckett filed a complaint on Jan. 7 in the 6th Judicial Circuit of Florida-Pinellas County against United Property & Casualty Insurance Company alleging that the licensed insurer failed and refused to provide full coverage under an insurance policy.
According to the complaint, Beckett alleges that on May 20, 2018, his insured premises at 5118 21st Ave. North in St. Petersburg suffered damage and loss as a result of a sudden and accidental windstorm, rainstorm or water. At the time of the loss the policy issued by the defendant was in full force and effect.
The plaintiff holds United Property & Casualty Insurance Company responsible because it allegedly failed to pay promptly the full amount due.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in an amount greater than $15,000, exclusive of prejudgment interest, court costs, attorney's fees and such other relief as the court may deem appropriate. He is represented by Grant W. Krapf of Krapf Legal PA in Dunedin.
