Insurance Claims- Many people struggle to obtain fair compensation after filing an insurance claim for personal injuries or property damage. This is because insurance companies are often more focused on their bottom line than on treating policyholders fairly when they file claims. This is why you could benefit from us managing your insurance claim. We will be a tireless advocate for your best interests, as opposed to the insurance company, which will do everything it can to deny or lowball your claim. We can represent you throughout the insurance claims process, helping you file your claim, dealing with the insurer on your behalf, and negotiating fair compensation. However, we also take cases involving victims who contact us after struggling to obtain compensation from an insurance company. Insurance companies often try to use loopholes in the language of the insurance policy to deny your claim or offer far less compensation than you deserve.

Our insurance law attorneys strive to achieve the best possible working relationship between the insurance company and the insured, implementing a well-thought-out litigation strategy. Insureds and Insurance companies that retain Stolz and Associates to handle their coverage issues obtain the most cost-efficient and effective results in an expedited manner.

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 the 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 insurance law team 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.

Stolz and Associates insurance lawyers have knowledge and experience concerning many types of insurance products, including Commercial General Liability, Directors & Officers, Professional Liability, and Excess and Umbrella. Our team strategically applies their knowledge of the insurance industry to defend insurers effectively in a responsive, proactive manner.

Our insurance law team specializes in representing commercial insurance brokers and agents. Our attorneys have considerable experience defending suits alleging misrepresentation or other wrongdoing on the part of company agents proceedings involving state regulatory issues. Our clients include some of the largest brokers in the United States and internationally.

Cases we defend for insurance companies often involve other areas of the law, such as employment law and product liability. Our group draws on the resources and expertise of other Stolz and Associates lawyers in these practice areas when appropriate.
