Working with insurance carriers
Construction Projects often involve property damage or personal injury losses that require working with insurance carriers to achieve coverage of the loss and reimbursement for the damage.
Contractors and Subcontractors are oftentimes required to indemnify others for damage arising out of or related to the work and a detailed understanding of coverage under Builders Risk Policies, General Liability Policies, WRAP or OCIP policies is necessary.
We are knowledgeable about insurance coverage
Drawing upon 25 plus years of experience, our attorneys are knowledgeable about insurance coverage issues and have successfully obtained insurance coverage for our clients on multi-million dollar losses in which coverage was originally denied by the carriers. We have a sophisticated understanding of the roles and responsibilities of various participants in the construction process, and the contractual and legal rights and remedies of the parties. Whether it be pursuing coverage as an additional insured, pursuing coverage for defense costs, or eliminating policy exclusions as a ground for denial of coverage, our attorneys are skilled in pursuing all avenues of reimbursement from insurance carriers for losses incurred on a Construction Project. We will aggressively pursue and protect your rights including bad faith actions against insurance carriers if necessary.
See our Representative Work page for examples of our results in obtaining coverage in construction and design defect litigation.
