Posted in Verdicts and Settlements on March 21, 2022

Cristobal Casal, managing partner, and Elliott Tubbs,  an associate, in the firm’s Fort Myers office, obtained a defense verdict in a first party property case tried over 3 days in Lee County, Florida.  Plaintiffs were the insured homeowners who claimed that their home's shingle roof and a significant amount of the interior of the home was damaged as a result of Hurricane Irma, and that the insurance carrier breached the subject policy of insurance by denying the claim.  The jury found that the Plaintiffs had not met their burden of proving that the home was damaged by Hurricane Irma.
