Defense through Arbitration and Mediation
The goal of our coverage dispute lawyers is to settle every claim prior to going to court to avoid costly litigation. We recognize it is essential to an insurance company’s well-being to maintain low overhead costs. One major cause of disputes is insurance fraud, which can devastate insurance companies, and cause unnecessary inflation of rates to policy holders. Other examples of coverage disputes arise out of confusion or misunderstanding of the policy, including arguments over verbiage in an insurance policy, claims filed for events explicitly covered or excluded by the policy, or from a policy holder exceeding policy limits. Disagreements related to primary and secondary insurance liability can occur. Clerical error that causes coverage to lapse can also create problems for insurance companies.
Our firm frequently assists insurance providers in seeking resolution for all areas of coverage discrepancies. We will carefully examine the policy and determine the amount warranted to be paid to the policy holder, and we will state the facts in a well-drafted opinion letter. After submitting the letter, we will work through arbitration and mediation to develop the settlement that will protect the insurance company’s interests. Shaw Cowart’s insurance defense lawyers have the reputation of always seeking what is best for our clients.
