Insurance Defense

Simply said, “insurance defense” identifies the practice of working on behalf of individuals or businesses being sued where the claim is covered by a policy of insurance.  In that instance, your insurance policy will hire a firm to defend you. An Attorney who practice in that field is often referred to as an “insurance defense” attorney.

All of our attorneys either are, or have been, insurance defense attorneys for most of their carriers.  It takes a unique person to practice in this area of the law as you never know what the case may be.  It requires a broad knowledge of all liability laws and the ability to present any dispute in a persuasive manner. 

Both Shellie McGaughey and Dan'L Bridges have obtained a very large number of total defense verdicts for our clients or otherwise kept a tight lid on damages when liability was clear. Although we are hired by insurance companies, it is the individual or business who is our client.  We take that seriously.  We fight hard for you.  Our attorney-client duties are all owed to you.  But, we are capable of balancing our duty to you, with the duty you have to cooperate with your insurance company.  Our ultimate duty is to our client but working in partnership with your insurance company, while never putting its interests above yours, we obtain our best results.

Because of the restrictions of many insurance carriers we cannot identify by name many of the insurance companies we represent.  However, be rest assured, you know them.
