February 23, 2010Miami attorney David W. Lipcon, of Lipcon & Lipcon, PA, last week filed a Garnishment action against the Burlington Insurance Company to collect insurance proceeds on a half-million dollar judgment he won against a condominium association.
Lipcon's client was the owner of a condominium unit at Biscayne Park Terrace Apartments. The association was in control of the common areas of the complex and had the responsibility of providing security to the owners and their guests. On May 6, 2007, Lipcon's client was attacked and beaten, unprovoked, by a guest of a renter of one of the units. He sustained serious injuries, including a fractured orbit and severe facial lacerations.
Burlington refused to provide insurance coverage for the incident claiming its policy excludes assaults and batteries.
Lipcon filed his lawsuit and won a $500,000.00 judgment against the Association. The Garnishment action seeks payment of the insurance proceeds to satisfy the judgment.
The case will be heard in front of Judge Peter Adrien, in the Circuit Court of Miami-Dade County.
