Practice Area: Litigation
Outcome: A confidential settlement agreement was reached.
Description: The Fowler's home and its contents were totally destroyed in a fire. At the time of the fire, the Fowler's were insured with Allstate Insurance Company. Following the fire, Allstate refused to pay for the fire loss claiming the loss was due to arson. In addition, 2 months later, other structures on the property were damaged by a windstorm which Allstate also refused to pay. After intense litigation, our experts presented evidence that the fire was an accidental fire caused by an electrical problem, and that the claims should be paid.
