Pfefferle Kane LLP reaches mediated settlement on $1.3 million fire loss
Mediated settlement negotiated on a $1.3 million fire loss involving a business in central Iowa. Despite significant fire damage, the team of experts assembled to investigate the loss were able to determine the cause of the fire and identify the responsible party. Settlement was achieved by presenting the defense with detailed expert reports and deposition transcripts establishing the defendant’s liability for causing the fire. Pfefferle Kane LLP had the forensic engineer from the investigation attend the mediation to assist the mediator in understanding the specific cause of the fire and to address any questions or contrary information raised by the defense.
