Firm wins insurance coverage issue resulting in $300,000 settlement for Murphy bed injury.

After extensive discovery and litigation, Indiano & Williams prevailed over an insurance company that had denied a homeowner coverage to a co-defendant at whose premise an accident had occurred. See, Docket No. 90, 11-1439 9(DRD), decided September 6, 2012. The accident involved a Murphy wall-bed that broke unexpectedly, severing part of two fingers of its occupant. In an extensive opinion, the District Court found for the plaintiff and held that the insurance company was deemed to provide coverage for this incident and that the insurance company had to pay the insured’s attorney fees for its denial of coverage. Shortly after the coverage issue was resolved, a settlement for the full policy limits was paid by the insurance company.
