Insurance Coverage, Disputes and Bad Faith Claims

Trif & Modugno attorneys routinely provide legal advice and counsel on a diverse range of insurance coverage matters across multiple lines (including coverage for automobile, commercial and personal property, construction, environmental, marine, personal liability, and umbrella liability losses).  Our team of professionals assume various roles when responding to claims including investigating claims, interpreting policy provisions, the appropriate application of policy exclusions, proactively preventing potential bad faith claims and, when necessary, zealously defending coverage positions in litigation and on appeal, and litigating declaratory judgment actions. 

Extra-contractual claims pose a unique set of risks to insurers, implicating their business operations and opening their company to potentially vast exposures.  Our attorneys help insurers and claims representatives proactively prevent potential causes of bad faith insurance allegations and work with insurers during the claims process to minimize bad faith exposure.
