Automobile Insurance Coverage
Coverage disputes frequently arise as a result of a car, motorcycle or truck accident. Issues related to accidents involving multiple insurance carriers arise whenever one carrier disputes coverage. Other automobile coverage issues involve supplementary uninsured motorist (SUM) claims, uninsured motorist (UM) claims, underinsured motorist (UIM) claims, personal injury protection (PIP) claims, and property damage disputes. Many coverage issues can be resolved quickly through special proceedings brought under Article 75 of the New York CPLR.
Insurance Coverage Disputes
We offer a wide range of advice on insurance related disputes for businesses, cities, and individuals. Our firm will advise you on the appropriateness of mediation and negotiation for the resolution of your dispute. If pre-trial mediation proves unsuccessful, we have the experience to take your case to trial.
Some other examples of insurance coverage disputes handled by our firm include:
- Flood and water damage insurance exclusions: A variety of issues may come up surrounding flood insurance. Did the insurance broker disclaim the exclusion properly? Did the insured waive coverage?
- Co-insurance and subrogation issues: Contract law governs issues related to subrogation, and an insurance company’s attempt to recoup insurance payouts.
- Car rental insurance disputes: The federal government recently changed the law relating to rental car insurance. Rental car companies no longer face liability for damages caused solely by lessee operators, but can still be held liable for their own negligence.
