Service Area: Property Damage 

After a denial of his homeowner’s insurance claim for damage to his foundation caused by the ruptured sewer line of the adjacent property, lawyers at Greenblatt Agulnick commenced a lawsuit against the insurance carrier for breach of contract and the adjacent property owner for negligence in failing to timely repair the sewer line.

The insurance company and its engineers maintained that the damage was actually caused by poor soil conditions and “settlement” of the earth upon which the home was built. Following significant litigation and successfully undermining the basis for the carrier’s reports, both the adjacent property owner and the insurance carrier submitted to private mediation where the matter was successfully resolved prior to trial for $200,000.00, which was more than the homeowner’s original estimate for repairs.
