Attorneys Michael Ponterio and John Comerford successfully represented the owner of the Envoy Motor Inn in Niagara Falls, New York against Dryden Mutual Insurance Company. Dryden Mutual refused to pay the hotel owner when the Envoy Motor Inn was destroyed in a fire.
The insurance company argued that the owner intentionally set fire to his own hotel.
At the conclusion of a four week jury trial, the jury awarded the owner, our client, over One Million Dollars for the damage to his hotel.
The insurance company did not appeal the jury verdict, and paid our client the total amount of his policy, plus $300,000.00 in interest.
