Long Island Insurance Disputes Attorneys

Long Island Insurance Law firm resolving insurance coverage disputes for our clients for more than sixty years

Although insurance companies like to portray themselves as good friends, neighbors, and helping hands, there are many times when the relationship between the insurance company and its insureds becomes adversarial. Insurers are armed with various defenses to coverage that they may invoke in certain circumstances, thus effectively vitiating the coverage paid for by the insured. In such instances, it is critically important to know and understand the “rules of the game” and how to combat those defenses in order to preserve and/or maximize the available insurance coverage. The fight for insurance coverage may be to the benefit not only of the insureds, but also to injured parties seeking compensation from the insureds.
