An apartment building in Queens was having its roof replaced. The roofers, while working with hot tar, caused a fire which destroyed the upper level of this apartment building. During the repair and renovation of the apartments, it was learned that there was extensive asbestos within the damaged apartments which required removal. All of my clients property had to be disposed of because of extensive water damage and the presence of asbestos.
After a lengthy and hotly contested property damage litigation we were able to successfully resolve this case prior to going to trial.
