The rapid increase in the number of apparent microbial growth (AMG) claims has become a problematic issue for those in the construction and development industries. As these claims often coincide with construction defect and personal injury allegations, they are proving to be costly for insurance carriers and owners of residential properties.
Our attorneys have been handling AMG claims for years and we have worked with and against leading microbial growth experts in successfully resolving these claims. As such, the experience that gartner + bloom PC has had with handling the defense of apparent microbial growth claims is an invaluable resource in the successful resolution of these matters. We have found great success in defending against claims of asbestos and lead paint contamination. We have worked with both residential and commercial clients in the courtroom and through alternative forms of mediation to reach a conclusion favorable to our clients’ interests.
