Insurance Defense

Defending insurance claims is a significant part of our firm’s practice. In fact, we have been heavily involved in insurance defense since 1924. Our firm regularly represents insurance companies both in first party suits, directly against the companies, and in lawsuits where we are hired by insurance companies to defend those they insure. Our insurance defense attorneys frequently handle the following types of cases: arson and fraud; coverage issues; medical malpractice; motor vehicle; premises liability; products liability; and workers compensation. Our firm also frequently handles uninsured Motorist claims as well as minor settlement approvals. We take pride in our excellent support staff, which includes two fulltime paralegals whose primary focus in handling insurance defense claims involving injury is gathering vast amounts of medical records, categorizing and summarizing the records in medical chronologies for use in the litigation process.
