Liability, Insurance, Subrogation, and Recovery

We Have Decades of Experience Representing Clients in Insurance Coverage Determinations, Disputes, and Related Matters

Parties involved with construction projects usually attempt to allocate and shift certain risks of loss or claims among one another through contractual provisions, and by requiring various types of insurance coverage as a condition of working on a project.  When a claim arises, it is necessary to evaluate and enforce contractual rights and the applicable insurance policies to ensure that the appropriate parties bear the costs associated with defending or resolving the claim. 

Our attorneys regularly analyze and enforce our clients’ rights under other parties’ commercial general liability and other insurance policies, including their rights as additional insureds.  When our clients, their insurance carriers, or their sureties elect to resolve a claim, we also handle subrogation and recovery actions against the parties responsible for such claims.  Our experience evaluating and enforcing insurance rights and claims is a critical advantage for efficiently and appropriately handling construction claims and lawsuits.

Along with insurance coverage matters involving construction projects, we represent businesses, governmental entities, and insurers in other liability, subrogation, and recovery matters. We have been representing clients in insurance matters since the Firm’s founding in 2002, and many of our attorneys have decades of experience handling insurance issues in Florida and throughout the southeastern United States.

In all insurance matters, we provide advice and representation focused on protecting our clients’ rights and interests under the particular facts and circumstances at hand. To do this, we take a comprehensive approach to claim analysis and recovery that involves:
