Insurance Coverage Defense Attorneys in Indiana
Skilled and Dedicated Indianapolis Attorneys Offering Insurance Coverage Defense
As an insurer, you are liable for paying out reasonable compensation when a claim is properly filed against a policy. However, determining what payment is appropriate under the circumstances and when the claim is “proper” often leads to prolonged disputes and overpayment. To protect your interests, it is essential to have insurance defense counsel to mitigate claims, damages, and losses.
The attorneys at Due Doyle Fanning & Alderfer, LLP provide aggressive defense for a range of insurance coverage issues. We have experience handling matters for insurers, brokers, reinsurers, and policyholders. From analyzing a situation at the outset to fighting aggressively for you in court, we provide comprehensive advocacy. If you need support for a current problem or are looking for assessment to minimize future risks, contact our office today to see how we can help.
Insurance Coverage Defense Strategies
Tailored counsel is required when determining the best approach to respond to a claim request. Depending on your situation, our legal team can provide a range of services including:
- Analyzing specific policy coverage to determine if payment is required;
- Advocating and investigating cases to prevent overpayment or excessive damage claims;
- Defending against bad faith claims;
- Pursuing out-of-court alternatives to streamline resolutions; and
- Advocating aggressively in court, if necessary, to protect the rights of insurers.
We work with insurance companies on a range of cases in many different situations, including:
- Auto and trucking accidents;
- Slip & fall incidents;
- Defective product claims;
- Toxic torts (including mold and asbestos);
- Construction litigation; and
- Fire subrogation.
Reaching a favorable outcome requires early assessment of the matter and investigation into the specifics of the case. Information revealing the truth of any of these accidents often disappears weeks or months after the incident. Securing legal aid immediately upon learning of the claim provides the best avenue to an efficient outcome.
First Party vs. Third Party Insurance Claims
There are two types of insurance coverage claims: first party and third party. In a first party claim, an insured party files a claim against his or her insurance provider. With a third party claim, the claim is filed against an individual or company's insurance provider by a third party. Your attorneys can help you understand the nature of both and what is required of you in either situation.
