Failure to Cure Mold Problem
In this case several employees of a large employer group became ill with “Sick Building Syndrome.” These employees sued their employer under workers compensation insurance for their disability, medical, pain and suffering, etc. The insurer for the large employer spent $5 million dollars defending the claim as they did not want to set a precedent. The insurer ultimately won the case and settled for statutory workers compensation limits with the employees. However, the insurer then sued our property manager for $5 million dollars to recoup their costs. Over $250,000 has been spent in defense of this claim so far.
