Seven-Figure Settlement for Subrogation Department
Ron Pingitore, Partner in the Subrogation Department, recently settled a gas main explosion case for seven figures. Ron, with the assistance of Michael Ciamaichelo and Jonathan Millis, aggressively pursued the utility company in a case where an underground electrical event melted a nearby plastic gas line, allowed natural gas to escape, which ignited and caused an explosion. The explosion severely damaged a nearby building. The utility challenged liability and the claimed building, business personal property and business income loss damages. Relying on liability and damages experts, Ron was able to settle the subrogation claim, pre-litigation, for several million dollars.
