Evaluations and Coverage Analysis

Our first-party property and coverage attorneys have decades of experience working in the field of insurance law and are committed to providing personalized service and attention. During an investigation, our legal team advises and assists insurance carriers to ensure that they fully understand the facts, coverage issues and potential exposures associated with the claim. Our lawyers conduct detailed and thorough Examinations Under Oath and work closely with our clients to identify and obtain the documents and information they need in order to make well-considered insurance coverage determinations.

The attorneys at our firm provide detailed first-party property and coverage opinions to our insurance industry clients. We have a comprehensive understanding of all types of insurance policies and are highly skilled in deciphering complex policy language and analyzing complex coverage issues. In addition, we offer detailed risk analyses and regularly counsel and represent insurers facing “bad faith” claims.

Resolving Coverage Disputes Cost-Effectively

At Conroy Simberg we understand that our clients are not in the business of litigation. When an insured disagrees with a coverage determination and asserts a claim against an insurance carrier, we are committed to resolving the action as quickly and economically as possible. Our first-party property and coverage attorneys avoid lengthy litigation by negotiating settlements and using alternative dispute resolution methods, including mediation and arbitration, whenever advisable.

When disputes cannot be resolved in this manner and litigation becomes necessary, our lawyers are prepared to aggressively defend clients at all levels of the state and federal trial and appellate court system. Our legal professionals keep clients informed during all phases of litigation and collaborate with them to develop legal defenses and strategies that rapidly and successfully bring an end to the litigation process.
