Insurance Coverage Disputes

Insurers are routinely involved in litigation concerning the meaning, scope and application of their policies. Often, this is for good reason – deceitful and fraudulent insurance claims are well publicized and unfortunately prevalent. However, insurance companies are not shy about contesting claims made by well-intentioned and deserving policyholders.
