NEW ORLEANS – A New Orleans woman is suing Davie Shoring claiming that while completing renovations to her home the company caused serious damage to her property.
Harriette Hurst filed suit against Davie Shoring Inc. in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court on April 17, 2015.
The plaintiff claims that following Hurricane Katrina, the Hursts contracted with the defendant in order to elevate their home. The work was allegedly completed in 2006, but Davie allegedly caused significant damages to the property. The plaintiff claims that she had been issued a lifetime warranty for the work on the property but has not been able to have her outstanding issues resolved. The plaintiff claims that the lifetime warranty has therefore been breached.
The defendant is accused of negligence in causing additional harm to the property, failing to repair the property, and causing damages to the plaintiff in not resolving issues with the repair.
The plaintiff seeks an unspecified amount in damages for loss of use of property, loss of enjoyment of property, diminution in value of property, mental anguish and attorney's fees.
The plaintiff is represented by Charles M. Thomas of New Orleans-based Huber, Slack, Thomas & Marcelle LLP.
This case has been assigned to Div. B Judge Regina H. Woods.
Case no. 2015-03675.
