Choosing an Insurance Lawyer

Whether you are an insurance policyholder or you are defending yourself against an insurance claim, you need a good insurance lawyer. This is the best way to ensure that you get the best service for your needs.

Defending policyholders against claims

Defending policyholders against claims by an insurance lawyer involves a wide variety of legal issues. They vary widely and may involve conflicts of interest.

In California, for example, civil code section 2860 addresses the potential for conflicts. In addition, Florida has passed legislation requiring insurers to provide independent counsel.

However, it’s important to understand how the duty to defend works and what a policyholder’s rights are in the defense process. The insurer has a duty to defend, but that doesn’t mean it’s always guaranteed to pay for the defense.

If an insurance company denies a claim, the policyholder can bring a lawsuit against the insurance company. This could result in a settlement, in which the insurer pays the plaintiff’s damages, but not the attorney’s fees. If the insurer denies the claim, the policyholder can also file a declaratory judgment action. The declaratory judgment action will help the policyholder recoup their attorneys’ fees.

Another way an insurer can deny a claim is to use a “reservation of rights” letter. This letter outlines a variety of defenses. It can also be used to challenge the denial decision in court. However, an insurer is obligated to provide independent counsel to defend an insured.

The insurance policy must state that the insurer has a duty to defend. In most cases, this duty is broader than the duty to indemnify. In addition, the insurer must investigate the claim to determine whether it is covered by the policy.

The insurer’s duty to defend ends when the lawsuit is resolved within the policy limits. However, the insurer may choose to continue to defend the insured in litigation.

The insurer can only deny a claim if there is a reasonable basis to do so. The insurer may also be obligated to defend an insured even if evidence later shows that the coverage does not apply.
