Segal McCambridge’s Insurance Coverage and Bad Faith Practice Group attorneys represent domestic and international insurers in bad faith litigation, often involving complex legal issues and significant extra-contractual exposure. Our team has extensive experience defending insurers in lawsuits alleging bad faith and other extra-contractual claims arising out of property damage and catastrophe claims practices, defense and indemnity obligations, excess liability judgments, uninsured and underinsured motorist claims, and personal injury protection and medical payment claims practices. Segal McCambridge attorneys effectively and efficiently manage the unique risks associated with bad faith lawsuits through a tailored, proactive approach to suit the needs of each client.
In addition to the skilled representation we provide in cases of bad faith litigation, our Group members also offer coverage analysis and dispute resolution services to primary, excess and umbrella insurers. Our attorneys include a nationwide network of experienced attorneys who serve as counselors and advocates experienced in a myriad of insurance products and issues. We understand that an outside law firm's role in a coverage matter must be tailored not only to the specific issues involved, but also to the nature of the assignment we are asked to undertake. When our clients turn to us for advice on complex coverage matters, we know they expect a clear, thorough, and objective analysis, not an ambivalent academic discussion packed with disclaimers that render it virtually meaningless, or an unrealistic, adversarial assessment that will only lead to unproductive litigation. And for those cases in which litigation is unavoidable, our clients appreciate our ability to bring the same skill, experience and aggressive approach to the handling of a declaratory judgment action that we employ in all other areas of our successful litigation practice.
