Legal Team Scores Defense Verdict Win in Homeowner’s Insurance Action
Posted in Verdicts and Settlements on January 23, 2018
Robert Horwitz, a partner in our West Palm Beach and Hollywood offices, and Pamela Moody, an associate in our West Palm Beach office, were successful in defending an insurer in a homeowner’s insurance action in which the insureds sought replacement of their kitchen after a drain line leak allegedly damaged their home. The defense successfully established that the leak predated the inception of the policy and was never repaired, and that the insureds’ damages likewise predated the policy period. The jury rendered a verdict finding that there was no “sudden and accidental” loss to the property during the policy term.
