Facts: Our client was a business owner who hired contractors to build a luxury RV park. The contractors performed shoddy work and we filed suit. The earthwork contractor failed to follow the plan details regarding dirt compaction resulting in dirt sinking and causing damage to concrete and underground utilities. Defendants blamed our client for being cheap and not wanting to pay for appropriate soil reports and soil tests. After a 3-week trial, the jury found the earthwork contractor 100% responsible and awarded damages.
