Firm Recovers Damages for $1.2 Million Flood Destruction
A Brooklyn building-owner was forced to pay more than $2 million after the company’s negligence was found to have caused a flood that caused $1.2 million worth of damage to Plaintiff’s property. The cause of the flood was a water leak, which emanated from a break in a water pipe that was in the basement of Defendant’s building. It was found that the Defendant was negligent in permitting the premises to become defective, and allowing them to then remain in a state of disrepair.
