What Is the Proper Measure of Damages In Cases Where a Party Has Been Able to Repair Damage to a Building ?
In Arrow Concrete Co. v. Sheppard (1994), 96 Ohio App.3d 747, 750, 645 N.E.2d 1310, the court stated that "in cases in which the party has been able to repair injury to a building, the proper measure of damages will usually be the reasonable costs necessary to restore the structure."
In Prawdzik v. II Enterprises, Inc., Franklin App. No. 03AP-1044, 2004 Ohio 3318, this court stated "if the trier of fact believes the evidence regarding the cost of repair has been inflated, the trier of fact always has the discretion to adjust the damages accordingly." Id. at P14.
