No Liability in Professional Negligence Case

November 2015



Tracy Zuckett obtained a defense verdict in a professional negligence case against a local plumbing company. Plaintiff claimed work done by the service technician was incomplete and improper resulting in flooding in the home and at least $22,000 in damage to personal property. The court found the service technician acted within the relevant standards of practice and the plaintiff failed to prove causation, as part of the flooding was preexisting and part was caused by rain water infiltration unrelated to the plumbing of the home. Therefore, the court entered judgment for the defense.
