Brooks v. Brister-Stephens, Inc

Brooks v. Brister-Stephens, Inc.
(February 2014)

Lance B. Williams obtained a $1,100,000 verdict on a subrogation suit seeking property damage from a house fire.  The suit stemmed from a fire which occurred on June 14, 2010, and resulted in a total loss of the home and property of homeowners.  The homeowners uninsured losses and their insurer’s subrogation rights were pursued against the air conditioning repair service that performed work on the home four days before the fire.  Mr. Williams produced expert testimony which demonstrated that the repairmen damaged the natural gas apparatus for the home, causing a gas leak which was ignited by the air conditioner. The case went to jury trial in the 22nd Judicial District Court, St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana.  The jury deliberated for one hour, before finding the defendant 100% liable for all damages on February 5, 2014.
