Murray + Murray is proud to announce that Attorneys David Murray and Howard Weber have secured a trial victory for two clients who were the victims of bad faith by their insurance provider. After a week-long trial, a jury determined that the plaintiffs were indeed owed coverage from Citizens Property Insurance Corporation.
The clients came to our firm after sustaining damage to their home. They filed a claim with Citizens Property Insurance Corporation—only to be told that the circumstances that caused the damage were not covered under their policy. Following that claim rejection, the policyholders turned to our firm to fight for the coverage they knew they were owed.
Litigating the Case
Attorneys Murray and Weber began by performing a detailed claims investigation. They found that there was sufficient evidence to argue and prove that the plaintiffs’ claim was actually covered under their policy. Citizens Property Insurance Corporation was willing to go to court over the matter and Attorneys Murray and Weber, over the course of a week, presented the findings of their investigation to a jury.
In the end, the jury sided with the plaintiffs. They found that the policyholders suffered losses covered in their policy and that Citizens Property Insurance Corporation failed to prove that the responsible factor for the loss was excluded by the insurance policy. Pursuant to the verdict, coverage will now be provided to our clients, allowing them to begin the needed repairs on their home.
We congratulate Attorneys David Murray and Howard Weber on their victory and know that this case is just one more example of the diligence and advocacy our firm is capable of.
