Hillary Cassel is scheduled to speak at the Summer 2018 Florida Association of Public Insurance Adjusters ("FAPIA") Conference in Sanibel, Florida.
On February 24, 2018, we presented our analysis and interpretation of the opinion in Hicks v. American Integrity. Due to the nature of the appeal, it was no surprise that American Integrity filed a motion for rehearing. On May 18, 2018, the Fifth District Court of Appeals denied American Integrity's request for rehearing and upheld its original opinion.
Analysis and Interpretation by Michael A. Cassel
On February 23, 2018, the Fifth District Court of Appeals released their decision in Hugh Hicks v. American Integrity Insurance Company of Florida (hereinafter "Hicks"). The Hicks opinion discusses the ambiguities inherent in the oft relied upon constant or repeated seepage exclusionary provision which is contained within most property insurance policies in the State of Florida.
We are pleased to announce that Cassel & Cassel, P.A., is officially open for business specializing in the representation of policyholders throughout the State of Florida in property damage claims against their insurance carriers.
