Insurance

 

 

 

The Law Offices of Alwyn H. Luckey maintains a multifaceted practice in the area of insurance law. We have long-standing relationships with insurance companies who retain our firm to defend their insureds in a wide variety of litigation.  We are retained by insurance and claim administration companies to defend insureds in a wide variety of litigation matters, including trucking and motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, work site accidents and exposures, and tort suits filed against businesses, such as malicious prosecution, defamation and infliction of emotional distress.

 

Our practice also includes defending direct actions against insurance companies and other coverage work, often involving large amounts of claimed damages. Many cases focus on interpretation of policy clauses and exclusions, multiple policies, layers of coverage and reinsurance, and claims of “bad faith” on the part of the insurance company.  Our firm also assists insurers in managing claims in order to avoid litigation, particularly with respect to actions arising out of demands for independent defense counsel in response to a reservation of rights, and demands for settlement within policy limits.  We also represent excess insurers in major tort cases, including those in which we monitor the defense provided by the primary carrier and those in which the excess carrier has disputed coverage.

 

Our firm has knowledge and experience concerning many types of insurance products, including Commercial General Liability, Directors & Officers, Professional Liability, and Excess and Umbrella. We strategically apply our knowledge of the insurance industry to defend insurers effectively in a responsive, proactive manner.
