Insurance Disputes

insuranceThe insurance dispute attorneys at Padilla & Associates, PLLC, handle disputes between insurance companies (the insurer) and their policy holders (the insured). When an insurer denies (“disclaims”) coverage, the insured is left without the protection of the policy.

On a liability policy, those benefits include defense (the insurer hires an attorney to defend you from the underlying liability claim) and indemnity (the insurer will pay the underlying claim up to the policy limits). On a life insurance policy, this means that the beneficiary will be denied life insurance benefits.

Our New York insurance dispute attorneys have experience fighting insurance companies to make sure they fully cover legitimate claims. Our firm’s founder, Jeffrey W. Padilla, Esq., has broad insurance coverage experience stemming from his many years of service working as an in-house attorney for a major insurance company.

TIMELY REPORTING OF AN INSURANCE DISPUTE IS CRITICAL
