Florida Panel: Court Erred In Requiring Insurer To Pay For Subsurface Repairs

Mealey's (February 22, 2016, 1:06 PM EST) -- LAKELAND, Fla. — A Florida appeals panel on Feb. 19 held that a lower court erred in ordering an insurer to pay for its insureds’ subsurface repairs before the insureds entered into a contract for those repairs and in awarding the insureds prejudgment interest, reversing in part the court’s $192,207.20 judgment against the insurer in a sinkhole coverage dispute (Citizens Property Insurance Corporation v. Ariety Amat, et al., No. 2D14-4274, Fla. App., 2nd Dist.; 2016 Fla. App. LEXIS 2412).
