Partner Kevin Byrnes Defends Property Owner with Brain Inflammation Caused by Adjoining Building’s Construction

In a case involving a property owner who suffered brain inflammation due to an error in the neighboring building’s redevelopment, FH+H Partner Kevin Byrnes and his client obtained a six-figure verdict against the developer who negligently discharged water on the owner’s property, which resulted in harmful mold growth.

Medical testimony established that the client suffered brain inflammation and loss of employment due to mold that developed from a broken waterspout, which the developer failed to correct despite several complaints from the homeowner.

Mr. Byrnes presented physical evidence and medical testimony at trial to prove the mold was caused by the activities of the developer, and he established wage loss as well as pain and suffering on the homeowners’ behalf, which led the court to impose punitive damages of approximately twice the compensatory damages.
