What is insurance coverage litigation?
Insurance coverage litigation is legal action a policy holder takes when its insurance company acts against the policy holder’s interests in violation of the policy provisions. Adverse actions include:
- Denial of coverage — The insurer claims that the policy does not cover the policy holder for the claim, damage or injury suffered.
- Low-ball offers — The insurer attempts to settle the claim for much less than the value of the losses, even though the policy limits allow for a fair settlement.
- Breach of duty to defend against a third-party claim — The insurer refuses to pay for the defense of a lawsuit brought by a third party. Liability insurance policies require the insurer to defend the insured against lawsuits from third parties claiming injuries, even when coverage is in doubt and the policy ultimately does not apply.
- Breach of duty to indemnify for a third-party claim — The insurer claims that the first party’s policy does not cover the third party’s losses.
In many cases, there can be a reasonable disagreement based on the language of the policy. Our attorneys are experienced in analysis and interpretation of insurance policies, and can make persuasive arguments for coverage based on the facts of your case. Our firm is also experienced in recovering costs, expenses and attorney fees against insurance companies for failing to pay claims for engaging in bad faith towards their policy holders.
