Insurance Defense

This is one of the mainstays of our practice, and we are proud to count among our insurance clients many of the world’s largest property and casualty insurers. 

But that is only part of the story, because we also enjoy longstanding relationships with numerous writers in the mid-markets and specialty markets, as well as several self-insured entities ranging from Southeast Michigan’s Regional Transportation Authority to several of the largest corporations in the world.

Our clients look to us to present in-house seminars, where we gladly convey information aimed at improving all aspects of claims handling in the auto, home, commercial general liability, and insurance coverage arenas. Several of our auto insurer clients, in fact, have redrafted their insurance products or changed portions of their claim procedures after a top-down review with our team of professionals. This is one example of the forward-thinking, partnering approach that has propelled us forward into one of Michigan’s premier insurance defense firms.

Our insurance defense expertise includes:

  • Wrongful death
  • All aspects of no-fault litigation
  • Complex no-fault coverage questions
  • Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association compliance
  • Premises liability
  • Commercial general liability coverage and litigation
  • Motor carrier defense
  • Group home and adult foster care defense
  • Product liability
  • Property loss and fire subrogation defense

Some of the notable cases we have defended include:

  • A multi-million dollar motor carrier loss involving a non-party fault defense premised upon negligent design and implementation of a highway construction project.
  • Representation of a material design firm following the collapse of a handling rack at a Big Three manufacturing facility.
  • A bacterial meningitis and amputation claim subsequent to a motor vehicle accident involving head injury, compromise of sinus cavity, and alleged onset of the bacterial infection.
  • A complex no-fault coverage claim involving an out-of-state accident with foreign claimants, and an out-of-state insurance policy with significant misrepresentation, policy reformation, and health insurance offset aspects.

Adding value is the key to success and deep client relationships in this competitive practice area. And to us, adding value means a lot more than just getting good results. It means being creative, going the extra mile, and helping clients become better at what they do.
