CHICAGO — A Pennsylvania insurance corporation is suing Power Construction Company LLC; Shawmut Design and Construction; and Advance Mechanical Systems Inc., citing alleged breach of contract and negligence in connection with a fire sprinkler system that burst and damaged a business' inventory.
Ace American Insurance Company, as subrogee of Burberry Limited, filed a complaint on Oct. 12 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they failed to properly install and make sure that the sprinkler system they installed in the Burberry property was free of any defects.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Ace American Insurance Company, as subrogee of Burberry Limited, suffered damages due to the sprinkler system suddenly bursting and causing water damages to sales inventory, which they blame on the defendants' alleged failure to properly complete and seal the property's HVAC systems.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants in the amount of $541,820, plus any further relief the court grants. They are represented by Thaddeus C. Baria of Cozen O' Connor in Chicago.
