A federal jury in Judge Myron Thompson’s court in Montgomery, Ala. returned a $13.6 million verdict last month in an insurance case. Carter Brothers Manufacturing Company, a Pike County company, sued Lumberman’s Underwriting Alliance over a fire loss. The insurer defended on claims of arson, fraud and failure to cooperate on the part of the Plaintiff. The claim arose out of a fire at the Plaintiff’s factory.
The lawsuit was filed after the insurance company failed to pay for Carter Brothers’ losses in the fire that very nearly destroyed their business. The fire destroyed all the company’s manufacturing equipment, and along with other items, over 3,000 brand new motor scooters still in their boxes. The verdict also included the company’s losses for the 200,000 square foot building. Jeff Kirby and Bo Johnson from Birmingham, along with Randy Smith from Dothan, represented Carter Brothers in this case and they did a very good job.
