This week I was retained by a general contractor who subcontracted out roofing work on a large construction project. The Sub negligently installed the roof, which resulted in significant water and mold damage to the interior of the structures. The Sub agreed to replace the roof. However, the general contractor has paid to repair and replace all of the interior damage.
The general contractor submitted a claim for the interior damage to its Commercial General Liability Carrier. The insurance company has essentially ignored the claim – neither paying or denying the claim after having it for months.
In exasperation, the general contractor retained me this week to pursue the claim. Suit has been filed seeking reimbursement under the liability potion of the CGL policy for the damage resulting from the leaking roof.
