Insurance Litigation

If your insurer denies your claim or refuses to defend you against a claim that you thought was covered under your insurance policy, you need experienced legal advice to challenge your insurance company’s decision.

Insurance contracts and the laws that affect them can be very complicated. Language in an insurance policy that means one thing to you may mean something very different to an insurance company.
