Representative Experience:

  • XYZ Insurance Company v. Refrigerator Manufacturer, et al
    • This recovery case became a complex multi-party maritime and product liability action that arose out of a fire at a large marina in Miami that destroyed more than five yachts. XYZ Insurance Company expended $1 million under the stated value policy for the insured vessel. The insured also alleged more than $500,000.00 in additional unreimbursed damage associated with the loss. The vessel on which the fire originated filed a limitation proceeding in federal court under the federal maritime law. All of the vessels damaged or destroyed in the fire as well as their respective insurers, were brought into the suit. A multi-disciplinary forensic work up of the cause of the loss led us to the conclusion that the refrigerator in the vessel was the source of the fire. Further investigation led us to conclude that a defective relay switch within the refrigerator caused the fire and resulting damage. This effort resulted in settlement of the matter at mediation for a very significant six-figure sum. This was accomplished with a minimal amount of expense compared to the tens of thousands of additional dollars that would have been spent had the matter proceeded through trial.

  • XYZ Insurance Company v. Fire Sprinkler Pipe Installer, et al
    • This case involved a residential apartment building insured by XYZ Insurance Company that was 99 percent complete.  The loss occurred when a CPVC sprinkler pipe in an apartment on the 15th floor burst and flooded approximately seven floors below.  XYZ Insurance Company paid its policy limits to the insured, $1 million dollars, inclusive of the insured’s $100,000 dollar deductible. The case was originally filed against various entities for a product liability claim, as well as a negligence action against the sprinkler subcontractor.

    • After conducting the necessary product testing, a determination was made that the pipe in question was not defective and the products defendants were dismissed.  Through the course of discovery, we learned that the exact pipe in question had a minor leak in the days prior to the loss, which the sprinkler subcontractor came out to repair.  Based on the testimony we obtained, we were able to draw out inconsistencies in the statements of the employees and expose liability on the sprinkler subcontractor.  Additionally, we learned through discovery that the general contractor in charge of the building construction also had some liability for the damages based on the actions taken by its employees after discovering the active water loss.  Consequently, the general contractor was added as a defendant prior to this matter being mediated.  This matter was eventually resolved at mediation, where we were able to obtain a recovery of approximately 70 percent of the value of the claim.
