The partial collapse of an exterior brick veneer of an apartment building was found not to be covered under the apartment policy. Keyser v. State Farm Fire & Cas. Co., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 81194 (W.D. Pa. May 14, 2019).
Norene Keyser was insured by State Farm for a six-unit apartment building. The exterior brick veneer of the property's west-facing wall partially collapsed while a maintenance staff attempted remedial repairs. Keyser filed a claim and State Farm hired Jon Nedley, an engineer, to determine the cause of the loss, and a contractor, Dave Wahl, to estimate the cost to repair the damage.
