Our experience working for and with insurance companies, insurance adjusters, public adjusters, insurance agents and brokers and insureds who have sustained substantial and often devastating insurance losses, enables us to effectively negotiate coverage disputes to resolve coverage issues without the need for litigation. When resolution of coverage cannot be reached, our extensive experience in commercial and insurance coverage litigation allows us to litigate lawsuits in an aggressive, yet efficient and cost-effective, manner.
Furthermore, if an insurance dispute by state or local authorities evolves into a criminal complaint against an insured for arson or other insurance fraud, our highly experienced criminal trial attorneys provide the required effective defense.
Catastrophic Events and Pre-loss Preparedness
We have experience assisting clients with unfortunate catastrophic losses and insurance claims, such as: losses and claims resulting from Hurricane Andrew in Florida, Hurricane Hugo in the Caribbean and Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf states as well as those from the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and the subsequent collapse of the World Trade Center towers.
As part of its Pre-loss Preparedness services, the Insurance Coverage practice group can provide a complete insurance policy portfolio review to determine, pre-loss, insurance coverage adequacy. In the event of a catastrophic event, we are expertly positioned to provide claims advisory and comprehensive consulting services for all lines of insurance claims through a network of claims adjusters, forensic accountants, contractors, engineers and other professionals. Our claims professionals can help meet the challenges of resolving claims and quieting the turmoil created in the wake of catastrophic events.
