With the avoidance of costly coverage litigation being our first priority, we provide effective strategic claims handling policies and procedures and prompt, in-depth analysis of coverage questions when they arise. Our experienced attorneys work closely with clients to develop and implement claims procedures designed to prevent first and third party disputes. We routinely assist clients in developing new insurance products and markets, drafting policies, evaluating target insureds, and devising claim prevention and claim handling protocols.
When judicial interpretation of coverage issues is necessary, our well-versed attorneys handle declaratory relief actions in both state and federal courts. From environmental and toxic tort matters to personal and property damage issues, from construction defect claims to complex business disputes, Severson & Werson’s attorneys aggressively pursue equitable and legal contribution actions in primary and excess insurer disputes and successfully defend coverage actions.
