3-D model for use in trial

For a recent client, we created a digital 3D model to use as demonstrative evidence at trial. The case was about water intrusion into a home, the cause of which was defective grading. The model clarified certain details of the home’s construction and illustrated our expert’s conclusions about how the building had flooded.

Robinson Hungate, P.C., Assists Wildfire Victims

The law firm of Robinson Hungate, P.C., is currently collaborating with bar associations and other law firms to assist those who have been directly or indirectly impacted by wildfires in the Colorado Front Range, including the High Park and Waldo Canyon fires.  The firm played a similar role in assisting property owners who suffered losses during the Four Mile Canyon fire in Boulder in 2010.

Robinson Tweedy stands ready to provide free consultation on simple issues, and reduced fee services for more involved legal issues.  Preliminarily, it is important that property owners suffering losses take certain immediate steps to preserve their rights, particularly with respect to applicable insurance policies.  These steps include: 1) making a detailed list of personal property and assigning a reasonable value for that property, be it purchase price or replacement value; 2) making a list of improvements to the property; 3) if not too long ago, recalling the names of all construction professionals who may have worked on the property; 4) contacting real estate and construction professionals for an estimate of the value of the improvements and likely costs of replacement; and 5) immediately contacting your insurance carrier to report any losses (but do not assume that the claim adjuster has your best interests in mind).

Inasmuch as insurance matters can be fairly complex, it may be useful to contact an attorney to communicate with the insurer about coverage and valuation matters.
