Louisiana counselors advise on coverage and subrogation issues
Our firm provides thorough analysis of insurance policy language and whether specific claims qualify for coverage. Following a detailed review, we issue clear opinion letters outlining the extent of the exposure our carrier clients face. In situations where the claimant bears fault, or more than one potential defendant exists, we’ll vigorously pursue information that demonstrates that other parties are wholly or partially responsible. Should the insurer have an obligation to defend against the claim, our lawyers work toward a prompt, favorable resolution whether that occurs through settlement negotiation, mediation, arbitration, a declaratory judgment action or, when necessary, litigation. We handle various types of matters, including:
- Tort litigation
- Claim management and apportionment services
- Reinsurance advice and disputes
- Bad faith litigation
- Professional liability litigation
- Appellate litigation
We also assist insurance companies in situations involving third parties. Our attorneys often initiate subrogation claims against liable individuals and businesses in order to obtain reimbursement for any payments our clients issued to policyholders.
