Laurel Stevenson collaborated with two attorneys from a state agency in recovering $1 million against a contractor for damages incurred by the state agency as a result of the contractor’s work.  The dispute with the contractor arose from fatalities and personal injuries that occurred in a construction zone.  Laurel and the attorneys from the state jointly investigated the claims and possible sources of recovery, and drafted a Petition which was sent to the contractor and the carrier.  The contractor’s carrier agreed to pre-suit mediation, resulting in resolution of the dispute.
