What Are the Most Common Examples of Insurance Defense Cases?

Insurance defense cases happen for a variety of reasons. If you ever need assistance with an insurance litigation issue, our team is confident we can help.
Common insurance defense cases include:

Claim Denials

When a claim is filed by a policyholder and then denied by an insurance company, our team can step in to help determine whether coverage is warranted. We can represent the insurance company to determine that there is no coverage under the policyholder’s insurance plan and that the claim denial is justified.

Laws and Regulations

Insurance companies are required to comply with state and local laws. Insurance companies could potentially put their business at risk if they unknowingly develop practices that are illegal or illicit. Our team will examine the rules and regulations in your area and help you create insurance policies that follow these to avoid legal issues down the road.

Bad Faith Claims

When a policyholder is denied payment under insurance, they could accuse their insurance company of operating in bad faith. A bad faith claim accuses the insurance company of denying the claim without proof or doing so in a manner to protect their profits. If your insurance company has been accused of bad faith, our team can step in to defend you and present evidence to the contrary.

What Does an Insurance Defense Attorney Do?

If you are involved in insurance litigation, our insurance defense team will step in to represent you every step of the way. We will begin by gathering evidence in your defense, using documentation and expert testimony to aid in your claim. We will then attempt to settle your case through negotiation with the other party.

In some cases, a case can’t be settled through negotiation. In that case, our team will take your case to court, representing you before a judge. We will present the evidence we have gathered to defend you until you get the outcome you deserve.
