Property Damage & Business Interruption Matters

Given our significant environmental practice and our related real-estate and insurance experience, Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC is uniquely situated to represent clients in litigation involving real-property damages, diminution in market value, and business interruption claims. In addition to remediation costs, real-property and business interests are frequently damaged by contamination from neighboring facilities or catastrophic releases. Through claims such as nuisance, trespass, strict liability and statutory equivalents, we regularly litigate and manage experts involved in valuing such business and property damage claims. Our attorneys also seek to maximize any available insurance coverage and pursue current and historic insurance policies that might provide coverage for our clients' losses.

Our attorneys have a thorough and particularized appreciation of the intricate scientific and expert issues that characterize such complicated and sensitive matters, including the admission and exclusion of expert testimony from toxicologists, risk assessors, chemists, geologists, engineers, forensic environmental scientists, property appraisers, and economists. Our lawyers have also litigated coverage disputes related to environmental contamination and weather-related damages.
