Fourth District notes that the fact an insurer is the party seeking attorney’s fees under Fla. Stat. § 627.428 does not, by itself, preclude recovery. As an assignee of the subcontractor’s claim, the insurer is s entitled to recover fees pursuant to Fla. Stat. § 627.428 upon rendition of a final judgment as prevailing party. See, Indiana Lumbermens Mut. Ins. Co. v. Pennsylvania Lumbermens Mut. Ins. Co., 125 So. 3d 263, 266 (Fla. 4th DCA 2013).
