New York Insurance Dispute Lawyers

Insurance Coverage Dispute, Insurance Defense Lawyers

For more than 50 years, the attorneys of Chiariello & Chiariello have represented injured people in personal injury and medical malpractice claims. Because of our experience and success obtaining financial compensation for plaintiffs, we are often asked to defend uninsured people who are facing personal injury lawsuits or to represent policyholders in insurance coverage disputes.

Insurance Coverage Disputes

You buy insurance so it will be there for you when you need it most: after a fire, a car accident, an injury or property loss. Unfortunately, many policyholders find that their insurance companies fail to live up the terms of their own policies.

If your insurance claims have been unreasonably delayed or denied by your insurer, our lawyers may be able to take legal action to compel the insurance company to cover the rejected claim.

Insurers regularly deny valid claims by policyholders. They know that a certain percentage of people will take "no" for an answer, rather than fight for coverage. This tactic saves the insurance company money and enhances its profitability. That doesn't make it right.

Insurance companies are required to defend policyholders if they are sued over a policy-related issue. For example, if someone is injured on your property and sues you, your homeowners insurance company is required to defend you. Failure to defend and unreasonable claim denial are examples of insurance bad faith.

Our lawyers will work to see that you receive all the coverage and legal defense benefits you are entitled to receive by law and by the terms of your insurance policy.

Defending the Uninsured Against Legal Claims

In today's economy, more and more people are cutting corners by reducing their insurance coverage or dropping it altogether. This leaves them open to the risk of being sued. Our attorneys have defended clients who either have inadequate insurance coverage or none at all. If you have been sued by an injured party after an auto accident or an accident on your property, please contact us to discuss your case. We will review your circumstances and advise you of your options. We may be able to negotiate or mediate a resolution to your case. If not, we can defend you in court.
