Arc welding by contractor leads to fire in new home construction



Stutman Law recovered in excess of $1,000,000 from a subcontractor and general contractor for damages caused by a fire to a multi-million dollar home that was under construction in Colorado. The fire started as a result of arc welding performed by the subcontractor who had a limited insurance policy. The general contractor blamed the subcontractor and argued that they had nothing to do with the fire. Stutman Law litigated the case and developed theories against the general contractor arguing that they had control over the project and supervision over the subcontractor. Ultimately, the case settled for more than 80% of the paid damages.
