$1,000,000 Settlement

Ryan Zehl Settled Hurricane Damage Claim on Behalf of a Commercial Property Owner

Ryan Zehl and Kevin Haynes represented a Houston real estate partnership that owns several large commercial office buildings around the state of Texas. One of the Houston buildings sustained significant roof damage during Hurricane Ike.

When the insurance company that insured the building refused to pay to replace the roof, we filed suit in Harris County, requesting over $1 million in damages to cover the replacement costs, as well as interest and attorney’s fees.

Within 4 months of filing suit, we successfully settled the case at mediation for an amount in excess of the roof’s replacement costs.

Attorney’s fees: $330,000

Case expense: $81,350
