Charleston Insurance Defense Attorney

Charleston Insurance Defense Lawyer

As a self-insured company or insurance company, you know how important it is to your company’s success to be able to reduce costs wherever possible.

One way you can achieve this is by putting up a strong defense when customers, workers, clients, or others file claims against you. However, some tactics used may be misconstrued as bad faith insurance practices, which can have the ill-intended effect of exposure to additional liability.

Each Charleston insurance defense lawyer in our office is thoroughly experienced in helping corporate clients like you navigate the legal process while keeping your best interests in mind. Let’s talk about any pending insurance claims that you’re currently dealing with that you’d like to see resolved in your favor.

Types of Cases We Handle on Behalf of Insurers and Self-Insured Companies

Our commercial litigation attorneys defend businesses and insurance carriers facing all different types of claims, including the following:

  • Health insurance
  • Premises liability or homeowners insurance
  • Workers’ compensation or disability insurance
  • Auto insurance
  • Professional liability or medical malpractice insurance
  • Casualty and life insurance
  • General liability insurance
  • Director & Officer (D&O) insurance
  • Flood or fire insurance

In addition to defending corporations in claims such as the ones above, we also support our clients facing insurance-related disputes, such as:

  • Disagreements over coverage
  • Insurance bad faith allegations
  • Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) compliance
  • Breach of insurance contracts
  • Accusations of insurance agent and adjuster malpractice
  • Declaratory judgment conflicts
  • Insurance fraud

In short, there aren’t many insurance-related matters that we can’t help with.  So, if your company needs assistance defending itself in a dispute with a claimant, please let us know. We’ll be happy to review your case and discuss how we can assist you with your legal matter.

What You Can Expect from an Insurance Law Attorney

As a self-insured company or insurer, we can certainly understand your desire to gain a better perspective on how we might support you at different stages as we work together.

During our initial consultation, we’ll begin carefully assessing the claim or lawsuit filed against you, or any other dispute you’re in the midst of, to sort out the legal grounds on which both you and the plaintiff stand.

This is necessary to determine what resolution options might be available to you per West Virginia law.

And, while we certainly try to resolve matters outside of court to keep legal fees down, we are wholly committed to taking your case to trial if that’s in your best interest.
