Jury Affirms Insurance Company Decision on Roof Repair Claim
Gentry Locke for the Defense
Roanoke County Circuit Court
The plaintiffs sued their insurance company, claiming the insurance company wrongly denied coverage for replacement of an 8,800 square foot roof. They claimed their roof was irreparably damaged by a hailstorm. The insurer excluded the claim on the basis that the roof had eroded and was totally deteriorated prior to the hailstorm occurring, and therefore no hail damage was compensable. After a two-day trial, the jury came back with a verdict in favor of our insurance client.
Jury verdict for our client; pending order of dismissal with prejudice.
