Defense Representation In Insurance Coverage And Fire Loss Claims

Some of the most compelling, persuasive and aggressive plaintiff representation in civil law occurs in areas of law involving great human suffering: auto accidents, fall injuries, professional negligence and product defects, to name a few. Devastating property loss through fires and other disasters also trigger forceful litigation by plaintiffs' attorneys on a regular basis.

Insurers daily face an onslaught of multimillion-dollar claims for compensation of injured plaintiffs and top-dollar fire loss claims. Protecting insurance companies' resources begins with detailed review of coverage terms and limits — not from the angle of how much suffering or loss has occurred. Insurance coverage reviews must be in-depth and transparent to be effective in liability defense matters.

Conklin Benham, P.C., from law offices within range of all of Michigan's legal jurisdictions, defends businesses, property owners and their insurers in a wide spectrum of injury, negligence and fire loss claims and lawsuits. Counterarguments to claims requesting lavish payouts may include:

  • Violation of policy terms
  • Misrepresentation of the facts behind an accident
  • Misrepresentation made in applications for insurance policies
  • Ineffectual policies due to late or insufficient premiums
  • Fraud or misrepresentation of losses by claimants or their attorneys

Insurance defense on behalf of insurers and self-insured entities from excessive liability requires detailed analysis; however, these same clients rightfully insist on speedy resolution of cases to avoid escalating legal costs. From its inception, Conklin Benham, P.C., has held to an ethic of cost containment along with vigorous defense of insurers and self-insured entities.
