Insurance adjustment firm looks to recover more than $13K from defendants

By Nicholas Malfitano | Jul 25, 2017

PHILADELPHIA – An adjustment firm believes a Philadelphia couple it says it advised on an insurance matter owes them in excess of $13,000.00, for that professional consulting.

Phoenix Public Adjusters of Bensalem filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on July 19 versus Robert and Judy Traina, of Philadelphia.

Per the lawsuit, on July 23, 2015, defendants retained plaintiff to advise and assist them in the presentation of an insurance claim filed with defendant’s carrier, American Modern Home Insurance Company. In consideration of plaintiff’s assistance, defendants contracted to pay a 12 percent contingent fee, specifically, that plaintiff would be paid ‘12% of the amount paid by the insurance company for this loss,” the suit says.

“American Modern Home Insurance Company issued payment in the amount of $113,000.00, as payment for this loss. Plaintiff’s final fee for this claim was $13,560.00. To date, no payment has been made by defendants, despite multiple attempts by plaintiffs to contact them and secure payment,” the suit adds.

For a lone count of breach of contract, the plaintiff is seeking damages of $13,560.00, plus interest and court costs.

The plaintiffs are represented by Anthony DiUlio of the Law Offices of Jonathan Wheeler, in Philadelphia.
