Our clients were a married couple with children whose home was destroyed by fire. The home was insured for fire damage by Travelers Insurance Company, who refused to pay, claiming that the fire was intentionally set. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans. The jury accepted the testimony of plaintiffs’ cause and origin expert, disregarding the testimony of the insurance company’s expert, and awarded a verdict for the entire insurance policy limits of $155,000, plus bad faith damages and penalties in the amount of $225,000, for a total of $380,000.
