After a fire that destroyed everything we owned, we pursued a claim against the contractor who caused the fire, culminating in a trial where we prevailed, albeit with a very low verdict by jury. Our attorney failed to properly advise the defendant of two experts that were to be called at trial, and thus no expert testimony was heard. We essentially lost the opportunity to elicit testimony to support a per se CUTPA violation, that the workers were doing work that they were not licensed for, that they had admitted to doing many times in the past. The expert testimony was required to demonstrate that the type of work they were doing was such that required a license. The defendant's attorney and experts exploited this easily. Any thoughts?
