CSK successfully defeats $500,000+ property damage claim in speedy jury trial

CSK’s George Hooker and Lindsey Halligan secured a complete defense verdict in a denied roof leak case in Broward County. Plaintiffs claimed their roof was damaged by wind, but George and Lindsey presented evidence that the roof was old and just past its normal life expectancy. The jury was out 45 minutes before finding the Plaintiffs didn’t even meet their initial burden of showing a sudden and accidental loss during the policy period. Benaejah Simmonds, Ismary Cepero and Suly Birnbaum assisted with case work-up and defense.
