Common Types Of Insurance Litigation And Defense

Auto Accident Claims

Our insurance defense attorneys are well-versed in traffic and insurance laws related to motor vehicle claims. For example, Pennsylvania’s Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law (MVFRL) and all of the issues related to that statute are complex. To receive compensation for special damages after a car accident, an injured person must have full tort coverage on their vehicle. We know how to defend against issues involving liability and damages in multi-vehicle and truck accident claims as well. These cases are much different from typical car accident claims and require the knowledge of lawyers experienced in trucking industry regulations on state and federal levels.



Class Action Lawsuits

From product liability to consumer fraud, businesses face all kinds of potential pitfalls that may lead to a class action lawsuit.  Our defense attorneys have successfully defended various insureds, both directly and through their insurance carriers.  Our seasoned attorneys are intimately familiar with the complexities of this type of insurance defense litigation and have defended class action lawsuits and mass tort claims in state, federal, and appellate courts. Often, we frequently resolve matters before they go to trial through arbitration or by defeating class certification.



Insurance Defense Appeals

Our team of litigation attorneys in Pennsylvania has the skills and resources necessary to effectively represent insurers in complex appeals. Our attorneys regularly handle appellate matters such as:

  • No-fault insurance claims
  • First-party insurance claims
  • General liability coverage disputes

Common types of claims and lawsuits that involve these issues include property damage claims, employment practices liability, business interruption, premises liability, motor vehicle claims, construction accidents, and other types of personal injury claims.

Our experience in insurance law and litigation also enables us to effectively determine when appeals are warranted. Our insurance litigation attorneys represent insurance companies in all types of appeals and disputes, including subrogation and indemnity issues, exaggerated claims of insurance fraud, allegations of bad faith, and priority issues.
