$7 million awarded to homeowner who was refused insurance payout after suffering damage from the Northridge earthquake

During the 1994 Northridge earthquake, a homeowner in South Central Los Angeles, like many homeowners in Southern California, suffered damage to his single family home as a result of the quake. The homeowner’s insurance carrier, however, refused to pay for approximately $45,000 in earthquake damage. Under Brian Kabateck’s representation of the homeowner, the case went to a jury trial and resulted in a verdict of over $7 million, including punitive damages. The case subsequently settled for a confidential amount.
