Commercial Building in the Boston Financial District Ruled a Collapse, Insurance Company Must Pay Tenant Losses

Carlo Cellai, Esq. represented a Trust against an insurance company for damages when the insurance company refused to pay damages when the building that the Trust was a tenant in was in a state of collapse. The insurance company took the position that since the building had not fully fallen to the ground but was only sagging, they did not have to pay the tenant’s damages. Carlo Cellai, Esq. litigated the case before the Superior Court where the Superior Court ruled that since the building’s sagging appearance was both sudden and visible, the building collapsed and the insurance company is responsible for the Trust’s damages.
