Nationwide Recoveries

Testimony is Key in Partial Recovery of “Cold Case”

Stutman Law recovered 60% RCV in a case that arose out of a fire inside of a mill complex in Connecticut. The fire was deemed undetermined by state officials, the ATF and the insurer’s first fire investigator. This case was pulled from another subrogation firm and sent to Stutman Law almost one year after the fire. Stutman Law ultimately filed suit against contractors working inside the mill after obtaining witness statements from the ATF and State Police files. The firm was able to establish through deposition testimony that the workers were smoking in the mill on the day of the fire and utilized a demolition saw that spewed sparks onto combustible materials. The case settled after several years of litigation and numerous depositions for several hundred thousand dollars.
