We successfully represented Slootweg Machinefabriek, an international packaging systems producer, in a case concerning compensation for damage. Both the first instance court and the appeal instance court decided in favour of our client and dismissed an action brought by a customer and the customer’s insurers.

Claims for fire damage allegedly caused by faulty quality products

Our client’s customer and its insurers sought to prove that the quality of the product sold by our client was faulty and caused a fire ‒ the total amount of the claim amounted to EUR 420,000. The purchaser claimed compensation to cover the portion of the price paid for the product ‒ which their insurers refused to compensate ‒ and for losses incurred as a result of the fire. The insurance company filed an independent action against our client claiming reimbursement of losses by way of subrogation.

Our services and team representing the client

Our team representing the client in the proceedings before the first instance court and on appeal consisted of partner Žygimantas Pacevičius with associate Aušra Gaurytė.
