Indiana General Liability Litigation
Our insurance defense lawyers have extensive experience with first and third party claims involving general liability. This includes physical injuries, emotional injuries and any other damages resulting from an auto accident, trucking accident, dangerous and defective product, or a slip and fall accident. We represent clients in premises liability claims, toxic torts including mold and asbestos litigation, explosion and fire litigation, fire subrogation, and construction litigation.
Insurance Coverage Matters
Coverage issues arise when an insured and an insurance carrier interpret an insurance contract differently. Our Indianapolis, Indiana insurance defense attorneys defend insurance companies against bad faith claims, including excess exposure. As an insurer, it is imperative that you contact an insurance defense lawyer with experience in bad faith claims because a liability judgment may result in severe punitive damages.
Third Party vs. First Party Litigation
First party litigation occurs when an insured sues their insurer directly. Third party litigation occurs when an insured is being sued by a third party. For example, if an individual was injured after colliding with a commercial vehicle, the injured person could file a personal injury claim against the company that owns that vehicle and its driver. That company has a commercial insurance policy that defends the lawsuit and provides indemnification.
At Due Doyle Fanning & Alderfer, LLP, we assist insurance companies with appraisals and appeals.
