COMPLEX INSURANCE COVERAGE ISSUES

A threshold matter for the insurance company in any insurance claim is to determine whether the claim is covered or not. This may involve a determination of whether the policyholder is in good standing and has complied with the terms of the policy in making a claim. Providing proof of loss or timely notice of a third party claim, as well as investigating the incident itself to determine it falls within the scope of the policy.

Our firm applies an in-depth coverage analysis and provides the client with an opinion letter containing our professional judgment regarding the policy's application to the facts of the matter. Insurers may utilize this information as part of their risk management or loss mitigation strategy in determining whether to approve or deny a claim or defend or settle a third-party claim. If the issue remains in dispute, we can represent the client in coverage litigation, including seeking a declaratory judgment or other proceedings, or litigating the underlying case under a reservation of rights, preserving the coverage issue for later resolution, if necessary.
