A home located on Perkins Lane in Magnolia was damaged by a large set of concrete stairs that was negligently dropped by a contractor on a steep hillside above the home. The homeowner’s property insurer paid for some, but not all, of the damage. When the homeowner sued to the negligent contractor, the insurer intervened in the lawsuit seeking to enforce its right to subrogate.
Harper│Hayes lawyers filed a bad faith lawsuit against the insurer, arguing that the homeowner had a right to be “made whole” before his insurer had any right to recovery. Harper│Hayes ultimately negotiated a high six-figure settlement.
