Our experience in the defense of liability claims includes the representation of insureds through a wide variety of insurance companies and self-insureds, and focuses on claims brought against:
- Commercial professionals, public sector professionals, and general contractors and subcontractors in various types of construction related claims.
- Manufacturers, retailers and distributors in a variety of products liability claims
- Individuals and businesses in general liability matters, including but not limited to motor vehicle injury claims, premises liability claims, fidelity claims, commercial claims and contract claims
Our attorneys have years of experience and an excellent track record of defending products liability claims involving injuries as a result of a product that was designed, manufactured, sold, and/or furnished by a person or company. Our attorneys have handled claims involving all types of airline industry products, machinery and tools, medical products and devices, motor vehicles, and recreational products.
Our insurance coverage litigation experience is very broad. We have been involved in disputes concerning most major lines of insurance on behalf of defendants in matters including:
- Environmental contamination
- Directors and Officers
- Construction Defects
Frequently, these are complex, multi-party actions brought in state or federal courts. Our extensive experience in managing large cases has proven valuable and in this regard, we have been very successful.
As the insurance industry has grown and insurance issues have become more complex, our firm has responded by developing a professional staff that is able to meet today's challenges.
Our lawyers work directly with claims representatives and adjusters, company risk managers, and national counsel towards resolving insurance coverage issues. In addition, in the course of our representation, we have been asked to assist with drafting or to draft reservations of rights and declination letters, provide coverage opinions, and pursue declaratory judgment actions coverage issues.
