St. Petersburg property owner alleges insurer failed to cover water damage

By Jenie Mallari-Torres | Feb 18, 2019

CLEARWATER — A St. Petersburg property owner is suing an insurer, alleging breach of an insurance contract.

Robin Dawson filed a complaint Feb. 1 in Pinellas County Circuit Court against FedNat Insurance Company, formerly known as Federated National Insurance Company, alleging refusal to provide coverage for damages. 

According to the complaint, on June 6, 2016, Dawson sustained a covered loss due to water damage on her property at 1610 70th St. N., St. Petersburg. Consequently, the suit says, Dawson was further harmed by the defendant's refusal to pay for all her losses under the insurance policy, despite its initial assignment of a claim number and Dawson's  compliance with all conditions precedent to entitle her to recover under the policy. 

The plaintiff alleges FedNat Insurance Company has failed to provide coverage for certain losses, and forced Dawson to retain legal counsel to prosecute action.

Dawson seeks trial by jury, damages of at least  $15,000, interest on any overdue payments, any incidental and foreseeable consequential damages caused by the defendant’s breach of contract, plus attorney fees and court costs. She is represented by attorney Maria A. Morris of The Nation Law Firm LLP in Longwood.
