A defense verdict was reached by the jury in a lawsuit against Allstate Insurance Company. The case was tried in Federal Court in Birmingham, AL before Judge Karen Bowdre.
The case arose after the plaintiff’s home was damaged by the tornadoes on April 27, 2011. Allstate paid the claim but the plaintiff sued, claiming that the insurance company had failed to adequately address all damages. Tom Bazemore and Jimmy Brady, partners with Huie, Fernambucq & Stewart, LLP, in Birmingham, AL, successfully argued that Allstate had fully compensated the Plaintiff and that additional damages asserted by the plaintiff were not the result of the tornado.
