Why it’s smart to have Environmental Services Liability Insurance
A small environmental services firm was hired by a large developer. The firm provided soil mapping services for an onsite waste disposal and a storm water runoff plan for a new residential neighborhood owned by the developer. After the neighborhood was complete, problems arose with the soil classification. The developer claimed the soil classification was erroneous and sued the firm, alleging the incorrect soil classification caused a septic system malfunction leading to extensive repairs estimated at $52,000. The case went to mediation and three years later settled in favor of the developer.
