Corless Barfield wins sinkhole trial in Hillsborough County

Our firm took a denied sinkhole claim on a commercial property here in Tampa Florida to a jury last week and prevailed. The trial lasted four days and the jury returned a verdict in favor of our client, a local business owner, Thursday afternoon. The insurance company presented four experts and a corporate representative verse only tow experts presented by the business owner. The issues were extremely complex and at times confusing. The issues involved whether structural damage existed, whether sinkhole activity was a cause of those damages and whether sinkhole activity was the primary cause of the causes verse other excluded causes. We were proud to prevail on all of the issues on behalf of our client who was also extremely excited with the result
