Insurance Coverage/Bad Faith

Lavery Law advises and represents national and regional insurance companies with regard to complex issues of insurance coverage, policy interpretation, and the appropriate application of policy exclusions.  Our first party and third-party experience encompasses all types of insurance lines including property, casualty, commercial general liability, professional liability, homeowners’ liability, auto liability, umbrella and reinsurance.  Our skilled attorneys combine our practical experience in the courtroom with innovative ideas to efficiently find sound business solutions for our clients in the insurance industry.

Insurance claims have the potential to raise not only a suit for coverage or defense under the insurance policy but, in certain circumstances, a separate cause of action against the insurer for extra-contractual damages arising from alleged non-compliance with regulatory claims handling statutes or common law governing the conduct of the insurance company.  Lavery Law attorneys have significant experience in defending bad faith claims against insurers.  We provide a complete range of legal services to assist insurers in avoiding and defending bad faith litigation.  Our services include the counseling of claims and underwriting professionals with respect to specific claim inquiries as well as defending litigation in which claims of bad faith are raised.

The close relationship that we develop with our clients enables us to have in-depth knowledge about the issues form which bad faith claims most often arise.  Our skill and experience in defending bad faith claims extend to a variety of professional liability, homeowners’ liability, law enforcement liability, liquor liability, public entity management liability and auto liability.  Our attorneys have successfully defended numerous matters alleging bad faith in both state and federal court.  Lavery Law prides itself in using our wealth of insurance knowledge and experience to vigorously defend our clients when a bad faith lawsuit arises.
