Tornado Property Damage

The April 2011 tornadoes that swept across the State of Alabama caused millions of dollars in property damage. In the wake of the destruction, insurance companies did not want to pay for their insured’s damages. Gary Conchin and Kenny Cole represented the owners a 1,200 unit apartment complex that houses thousands of University of Alabama students. The apartment complex’s insurance company disputed that our client’s damages were caused by the tornado. After four days of presenting evidence to the jury in a Tuscaloosa federal court, Gary and Kenny were able to obtain a jury verdict in the amount of $1,822,000.
