Fla. Appeals Court Reinstates Action Involving Costs for Roof Replacement Following Hurricane Wilma
April 12, 2016
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A Florida appeals court has reversed an award of summary judgment to a policyholder in a hurricane damage coverage action, ruling that questions of fact exist as to whether the insured was provided timely notice of its right to mediate and whether it was forced to file a breach of contract action against the insurer.
The Florida Court of Appeal, 4th District, further ruled that a question of fact exists as to whether the insurer’s payment of an appraisal award was a confession of judgment.
