Ryan Luna & William Watts obtain summary judgement for insurance client on claims of bad faith and breach of contract

Helmsing Leach attorneys Ryan Luna and William Watts obtained summary judgment from the federal district court in Mobile, Ala. in two lawsuits on claims against an insurer for bad faith and breach of contract under a homeowner’s policy for damages arising from a hurricane.  The court held that the plaintiffs were not able to prove their damages. The court ruled that the testimony of their expert on the reasonable and necessary costs of repair was inadmissible because the expert was merely a “mouthpiece” for one of his estimators who inspected the property and determined the costs.
