An insurance company’s success depends on a number of factors, including the types of policies it offers, the amount of premiums it collects, and the amount of benefits it pays out from claims made by policyholders. For these reasons, insurers cannot accept all claims at face value, or they could end up paying out claims that may seem legitimate on the surface, but are not in fact covered by the terms of the policy. Instead, insurance companies investigate all claims submitted to them to ensure that the damage claimed is covered by the claimant’s policy. Unfortunately, when these investigations lead to a denial, disgruntled claimants may file suit against the company itself. In these situations, an experienced insurance defense attorney can make all the difference in the outcome of the case, so if your company is being sued by a claimant, please contact a member of our insurance defense legal team for advice.
The services of an insurance defense attorney are required in a variety of situations. If, for example, a policyholder who was involved in a car accident is being sued by another driver, an insurance defense attorney could be retained by the insurance company to come to the defense of the policyholder. Insurance defense attorneys also play a critical role in ensuring that an insurer’s business practices and contractual relationships comply with both state and federal regulations. This is especially important for insurance companies that operate in numerous states, as regulations tend to differ significantly from one state to another. Finally, insurance defense attorneys are often required to help insurers collect reimbursement from at-fault third parties for payments made to policyholders.
At Valiant Law, our insurance defense legal team has over ten years of experience representing major insurers, as well as small and mid-size insurance companies, reinsurers, and intermediaries in matters involving a variety of policies, including: property; general liability; energy; professional liability; and environmental. We have the experience and resources necessary to interpret and apply these policies and ensure that consumers do not take advantage of our clients by filing fraudulent claims. Although mediation and arbitration can help parties resolve insurance-related disputes, it is often necessary to litigate a case in order to settle the issues. Our attorneys’ years of trial experience play a crucial role in our record of success.
We’ve all heard stories about insurance companies that refuse to pay claims out of bad faith. However, the reality is that insurers are constantly bombarded with fraudulent claims that must be fully investigated, and many insurers also come under fire from policyholders when their claims are rightfully denied. These types of issues can end up costing insurers millions of dollars, so if you or your insurer are being sued by a third party, please contact us at Valiant Law to speak with an experienced insurance defense attorney. We can be reached at (909) 677-2270 or by completing and submitting one of our online contact forms.
