Homeowner seeks more than $350,000 from Platinum Roofing over fire damages

ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis homeowner alleges that workers repairing the roof on her home caused a fire.

Angela Waggoner filed a complaint on July 2 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Platinum Roofing LLC alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff had the defendant install a new roof on her home in 2015 and in May 2017, she contacted the defendant to repair a leak.

While the defendant's employees were fixing the roof and using a torch, the suit states a fire ignited, causing significant damage to plaintiff's real and personal properties of more than $350,000. 

The plaintiff holds Platinum Roofing LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to safeguard the roofing activities at plaintiff's home and failed to train and supervise its workmen and/or subcontractors in the safe and responsible use of torches and other roofing work tools.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $350,000, with interest and costs. She is represented by Marisa L. Saber and Jeffrey B. Greenspan of Cozen O'Connor in Chicago.
