A significant portion of our practice involves legal disputes with health, auto and other insurance companies regarding the insurers' obligation to pay or reimburse our clients for losses and harms. Generally, once a claim arises, insurance companies are on their own side and their hands often will not be as helpful as their policy holders might have expected. Unfortunately, legal representation and a lawsuit are often necessary to protect the rights and interests of those who are entitled to insurance coverage benefits but whose claims are denied in full or in part.
