We tried a case against Tower Hill last year where the sole issue was does chemical grout need to be performed at the property in addition to the compaction grout that the insurance company’s engineer recommended. The engineer for Tower Hill was SDII and at trial SDII testified that no way would chemical grout be required and that their proposed plan would fix all the issues. Well, we lost the trial. Our client went on to repair her home the way SDII recommended. Wouldn’t you know it, after the repairs were complete, SDII took another look and sure enough they now recommended chemical grout be performed. After all that, trial and testimony, Tower Hill will be paying for the chemical grout anyways. Seems like it would have saved everyone a ton of time and money to just have fixed it right the first time around. Oh well.
