Harper | Hayes Negotiates Multi-Million Dollar Settlement in Favor of Local Business in Environmental Insurance Coverage Action

In 2014, a local equipment rental business was sued in an environmental lawsuit involving the cleanup of hazardous materials that had purportedly been released as far back as the 1950s. The business retained Harper | Hayes, which secured a dismissal of the cleanup lawsuit and brought a separate coverage lawsuit against the business’s liability insurer. Through extensive digging, the Harper | Hayes team was able to locate decades-old policies, which gave rise to a multi-million dollar settlement in favor of the business.
