Favorable Jury Verdict on Business Interruption Claim Against Joint Tortfeasors

A Hodgson Russ client’s business was destroyed when the landlord of the building housing the business hired a contractor to make major changes to the building's roof. The roof work resulted in major flooding in our client’s space as well as contamination with metal shavings and other roof debris. When the owner and contractor each denied liability, Hodgson Russ conducted litigation resulting in a favorable jury verdict and award after a four-day trial.
