ORLANDO — An Orlando homeowner is suing a licensed insurer, alleging breach of insurance policy regarding damage from a storm.
Clara Spence filed a complaint Jan. 31 in Orange County Circuit Court against Universal Property and Casualty Insurance Company, alleging failure to pay the plaintiff's claim for coverage.
According to the complaint, on July 10, 2017, Spence's home at 5421 Blue Tick Drive, Orlando, was damaged due to wind and a hailstorm. At the time of the storm, the suit says, her home was insured for property and liability coverage under the Universal policy with a limit of $204,864.
The plaintiff alleges Universal Property and Casualty Insurance has refused to pay Spence's claim, alleging she was already paid for prior damage to the dwelling.
Spence seeks trial by jury, damages that exceed $15,000, exclusive of interest, court costs and attorney fees. She is represented by attorney Michael P. Sapourn of Law Offices of Michael P. Sapourn in Melbourne.
