Aggressive Claims Defense

A car accident claim can have devastating effects on the profitability of your company. Our firm focuses on limiting liability or dismissing the claim in its entirety. We represent major insurance companies, as well as self-insured businesses operating a fleet of commercial vehicles. Before negotiating or litigating any case, our attorneys conduct extensive discovery and investigation of a car accident claim.

First and Third Party Insurance Claims

Our firm defends against all types of first party and third party claims, including:

  • Bad faith claim denials
  • Supplementary uninsured motorist (SUM) claims
  • Uninsured motorist (UM) claims
  • Underinsured motorist (UIM) claims
  • Personal injury protection (PIP) claims
  • Property damage claims

In addition to civil litigation and pre-trial negotiation, we routinely appear at alternative dispute resolution (ADR) hearings, including binding and non-binding arbitrations. We defend and prosecute special proceedings brought under Article 75 of the New York CPLR. We also represent clients dealing with issues related to late notice, lack of cooperation, improper disclosure and negligent brokers.

We will do what is necessary to protect your interests. You may have indemnification and co-insurance rights. We also represent carriers in actions involving subrogation, declaratory judgment, commercial insurance and personal coverage.

Assigned Risk Policies

Under New York state law, all admitted insurance companies must take part in the New York Automobile Insurance Plan (NYAIP) that provides auto insurance to high-risk drivers. The law provides unique protections for insureds covered through the plan. We represent insurance companies in dealing with AIP claims and Rule 14 violations.

If you are concerned about liability arising from a car accident claim, contact our managing partner to schedule a consultation. Read more about questionable insurance claims by visiting our insurance defense information center.
