Uncovering code violations leads to successful recovery

A fire at a multi-story apartment building in Maryland was caused by a plumber soldering a domestic water line in the basement of the building. Although the plumber argued that the damages were exacerbated by the lack of proper fire stops and fire walls in the old apartment building, Stutman Law recovered $1,250,000 from the plumber after proving that he violated several provisions of the NFPA code, including the requirement to maintain a fire watch.
