Most firms that practice insurance law represent the insurers. We don’t. We are one of the handful of law firms in the United States that handles insurance litigation on behalf of policyholders only. And we may be the only insurance firm that can lay claim to a stunning statistic – we have lost just one insurance case in the firm’s history. With more than 100 years of experience among the New York Insurance lawyers on our team, our winning percentage speaks volumes. Simply put, we have generally won our cases.
Our Insurance Lawyers Help You Go After the Insurance Companies
In 2001, we obtained what was at the time the largest verdict ever in a disability insurance case in New York and established new rights to recover damages for bad faith. We were also the first law firm in New York to establish a policyholder’s right to recover treble and punitive damages from insurance companies for violation of the RICO Statute. We force insurance companies to defend policyholders who have been sued. We prosecute claims against insurers for failing to pay businesses for lost or stolen property. All totaled, we have recovered hundreds of millions in insurance coverage and benefits for our clients.
Our insurance litigation practice includes:
- Disability insurance benefits (individual policies and group cases under ERISA)
- Life insurance claims
- Business interruption claims
- Coverage actions to require your insurance company to defend and indemnify you and your business in third-party litigation
- First party property damage and casualty cases
