Contractor Held Liable After Negligently Moving Humidifier

A water line connected to a humidifier separated from a fitting and caused a significant water loss at a residential property.  Stutman Law coordinated an investigation into the cause of the loss and identified a contractor who had relocated the humidifier several years before the loss occurred.  Our investigation revealed that the contractor had failed to remove a section of the pre-existing water line, which prevented a secure connection at the fitting.  The contractor vehemently denied that his work played any role in causing the water loss, and the claim was ultimately submitted to an arbitration panel.  The panel found in favor of Stutman Law’s client and entered a six-figure award.
