Attorney Daniel Lustig Quoted In The Sun Sentinel
Attorney Daniel Lustig, of the firm Pike & Lustig, said any negligence by a condo association could put owners at risk of losing their insurance coverage, leaving them with no compensation for the loss of their homes.
“The insurance company for the condominium association will try to latch itself to anything to avoid coverage,” he said. “If there’s no insurance coverage here, it will be akin to the association telling all those families, all those who suffered from the irreparable damage done to their lives, I’m sorry but the collapse is excluded.”
He said condos have “a duty under Florida law for sure to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition” and said more information will come out as lawsuits are filed.
