In cases like these, it usually ends up with multiple parties pointing the finger at each other, trying to escape liability. The contractor blaming the subcontractor, the subcontractor blaming the landscaping company and the landscaping company blaming our client. Our type of fun. Fortunately, we were able to get all liable parties to contribute in order to reach a fair settlement. We had to file a lawsuit but we avoided a costly trial and our client is very happy with the result.
