HUNTINGTON — Two property owners are suing Jeremie Akers and Grace Contracting LLC for negligence in connection with the design and construction of their home.
Linda Pittman and Larry Pittman filed a complaint May 3 in Cabell Circuit Court, alleging that the defendants breached their duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, the Pittmans suffered damages as a result of the carelessness of the defendant in the improper design and construction of plaintiffs' home, which resulted in Linda Pittman being exposed to airborne mold spore particles and suffering from chronic inflammatory response syndrome. The plaintiffs allege that they also suffered inconvenience, physical and mental pain and suffering and anxiety and incurred medical expenses because of the defendants' negligence.
The plaintiffs claim the defendants failed to comply with all applicable building codes and regulations, failed to adhere to industry standards and reduced the value of the home.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant for damages in an amount in excess of the court's statutory threshold. They are represented by W. Stephen Flesher of Law Offices of W. Stephen Flesher in Barboursville.
