BEAUMONT – A Port Arthur homeowner is suing Allstate Insurance, alleging breach of contract in connection with a flood insurance policy.
Francisco Capistran filed a lawsuit Feb. 18 in the Beaumont Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Allstate Insurance Company alleging breach of contract.
According to the lawsuit, Allstate sold and issued a standard flood insurance policy to Capistran to insure his property and contents. On July 18, 2014, the suit states, a flood in Port Arthur caused high water and led to severe damage to Capistran’s home on 609 Brazos Ave.
Up to the date of filing this complaint, according the lawsuit, Capistran has been continuing to adjust his claim. The plaintiff alleges Allstate has unfairly and improperly persisted in underpaying and continuing to “stall” and ``drag out” the claim since 2014.
Capistran seeks such amount as to be proved at trial, reasonable attorney fees and costs, plus pre-judgment as well as post-judgment interest. He is represented by attorneys John Pat Parsons, Michael J. Lindsay and Barrett P. Lindsay of Lindsay, Lindsay & Parsons in Beaumont.
