At Saunders Walsh & Beard, we help our clients (large and small) get the insurance coverage they paid for when they purchased their insurance policy. Two of our partners–Alex Beard and Mark Johnson–each have decades of experience dealing with insurance companies and analyzing insurance policies. In fact, both Mr. Beard and Mr. Johnson represented insurance companies exclusively for several years, and they now leverage that valuable experience in representing our policyholder clients and assisting them with their insurance-related issues.

Has your company been sued, and is your liability insurance carrier refusing to provide your company with a defense to the lawsuit? We can help. We will analyze the insurance company’s position, determine whether it is correct, and advise you of your company’s rights. If the insurance company has wrongfully denied a defense to you or your company, we have strategies that can be used to get them to defend. This can save you and your company a lot of time and money.

Is your company a general contractor or subcontractor that has been sued in a construction defect case? Construction cases can be costly to defend and even more costly to settle. It is therefore essential that your company take advantage of all the insurance resources available. Even if your company’s own liability insurer is providing your company with a defense to the lawsuit, other parties to the suit or their insurance companies might owe your company valuable coverage as well, often as an “additional insured”. We help our construction clients sort through these issues and maximize the insurance coverage that might be available to them through other parties or their insurers. This can also save you and your company a lot of time and money, while at the same time significantly increasing the chances of a favorable outcome for your company in the lawsuit.

Perhaps your company simply has a property damage claim of its own which your insurance company has not paid (or is making a “lowball” offer on) and you disagree with their decision or evaluation. We can help you in that situation as well. Our firm’s insurance coverage lawyers enjoy assisting our clients in getting their property damage claims paid.

These are just some of the insurance-related situations in which we assist our clients. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your particular case or situation. In many instances we are willing to take a case on a contingency basis, meaning the client does not pay us anything unless we prevail in court or achieve a favorable settlement. Call us today and schedule a time when we can discuss your particular insurance-related issue or dispute.

More than anything my wife and I, would like to say that if it wasn’t for Alex Beard and Mark Johnson, we could’ve been taken advantage of, and because of them our situation turned out really well. We cannot say enough great things about them! We “THANK YOU”, both from the bottom of our hearts.
