When your pest control company says it is old damage therefore not our responsibility you should always be skeptical. Keiron McGowin, senior litigator at Campbell Law PC, explains that in court termite companies almost never succeed on claims that damage is “old” therefore not our responsibility. If they never disclosed the damage during prior inspections, then they never properly inspected or it happened on their watch. Usually, the damage occurred because the company neither performed a proper inspection nor applied preventive treatment which met the required standards. Do not give-in or give up hope if this is the reason being used to leave your family with a costly repair bill for exploration and repair. We see this defense all the time and successfully litigate against it.
