By Annie Cosby | Feb 6, 2015

An insurance company is suing for damages it paid to an insured homeowner after a fire.

Allstate Texas Lloyds, as subrogee of Michael Liggio, filed a lawsuit Dec. 22 in Galveston County District Court against Mackey Mechanical Services Co., citing negligence.

According to the complaint, a fire broke out in Liggio's residence on Longwood Lane in Dickinson on Dec. 21, 2013, as a result of an electrical fault and improper grounding of an HVAC unit after the defendant had replaced the home's upstairs furnace and duct work.

Allstate seeks more than $200,000 in damages which it paid to Liggio. It is represented by attorneys William T. Sebesta and Randall J. Poelma Jr. of Doyen Sebesta in Houston.

Galveston County District Court case number: 14-CV-1336
