Recovery for Fire from Spontaneous CombustionOctober 10, 2012 | Category: Subro News and Cases
After the owner of a $35 million home hired a painting company to perform painting and staining work in the home, a fire broke out causing substantial damage. Experts retained by Kramer Green early in the case revealed the origin and cause of the fire to be spontaneous combustion of stain rags left unattended by the painter. Subsequent investigation and testing performed after the defendant was put on notice of the claim was consistent with the initial determination. Because of the prompt involvement of experts, which yielded opinions which supported a very good case of liability, the lawyers at Kramer Green were able to successfully settle the case very early, for 93% of the paid claim.
