Insurance Litigation

Enforcing Coverage Rights Through Insurance Litigation

If your company or family is disadvantaged by an insurance company's decision to deny coverage under a liability or casualty policy of any kind, contact a civil litigation attorney at Caufield & James to see whether you have any recourse against the insurer. Our experience with the interpretation and enforcement of the rights of the insured under commercial and consumer insurance policies can help protect you from the consequences of an unfavorable judgment or uncovered loss.

Our lawyers sue insurance companies for breach of contract or bad faith

The rights of the insured against an insurer are based primarily on the contract of insurance as expressed in the policy and riders, but can also derive from the general duty of good faith imposed by law on every insurance company in dealing with its insured. As experienced insurance litigation counsel, we know how to investigate, document and present both contract and bad faith claims against insurers.

We represent the insured in coverage disputes against the insurer on such policies as the following:

  • Environmental coverage
  • Homeowner's liability and casualty insurance
  • Errors and omissions insurance
  • Professional liability or malpractice coverage
  • Directors and officers' insurance
  • Commercial general liability coverage
  • Auto insurance
  • Boat insurance
  • Life insurance

No matter what the circumstances of your insurance coverage dispute might involve or how complex they might be, our experience with insurance litigation can make the decisive difference in the resolution of your case. In fact, our reputation as effective advocates for policyholders can help lead to an early and favorable resolution of your problem with a denied claim.
