Liability Theory Leads to Recovery for Water Damage to Dental Office

Stutman Law’s insured had a dental practice located in Illinois right next door to a dry cleaner. A water leak damaged the dental office’s property. At the time of loss, the nature and cause of the water leak was unknown. The insurance carrier for the drycleaner informed the owner of the dental office that its insured was not at fault. Stutman Law began an investigation post denial of liability. Through interviews with local officials, Stutman Law attorneys were able to establish a theory of liability against the dry cleaner and the drycleaner’s business insurance carrier accepted liability and paid 100% of the claim.
