Ayers, Trapp obtain favorable jury verdict in Eau Claire County Circuit Court involving gas explosion coverage case.
On May 19, 2013, a house exploded in Fall Creek, Wisconsin, due to an LP gas leak, causing considerable damage to nearby properties. The plaintiffs’ neighbors contended their home was structurally damaged from the explosion to the point it had to be replaced and sought the policy limits under defendant insurer’s homeowner’s policy. The case was tried to a 12 member jury in Eau Claire Circuit Court from June 2 through June 5, 2015. The jury returned a verdict favorable to the insurer, finding only nominal damage to the home.
