Insurance Coverage/Bad Fa…

A substantial focus of Schell Cooley Campbell LLP's practice is insurance coverage and bad faith litigation. We have many years of experience interpreting insurance policies and rendering opinions on coverage, duty to defend, duty to indemnify, and other insurance contract-related issues. We offer a variety of services ranging from coverage opinions to litigation and appeals. Our expertise covers a wide variety of insurance contracts including claims arising under Comprehensive General Liability, Homeowners' Policies, Equine Policy, Automobile Policies, E&O Coverage, Workers' Compensation, Employers' Liability, Builders' Risk, Excess and Umbrella Liability, Business Interruption and Professional Liability.

When coverage concerns appear during handling of a claim, our clients turn to our coverage expertise to provide guidance in policy interpretation and strategies for litigation avoidance. We assist our clients in educating their claims personnel to avoid missteps in claim handling that can lead to litigation.

When litigation is unavoidable, we provide our clients strategies for minimizing exposure to extra-contractual damages. We counsel our clients on tactical use of pre-emptive declaratory judgment actions. We routinely prosecute and defend coverage lawsuits in state and federal courts throughout Texas and in other jurisdictions as well. We successfully defend our clients against allegations of bad faith, Insurance Code violations, Deceptive Trade Practices, or other acts of negligence. We pride ourselves on vigorous and efficient advocacy, obtaining the best result for our client in the timeliest manner possible.

We also frequently represent insurers in prosecuting arson, theft, misrepresentation and concealment claims. Our attorneys are experienced in detecting suspicious claims through early investigation, including conducting examinations under oath and analyzing damage appraisals, financial statements, tax records and other evidence that may contain information indicative of fraudulent or exaggerated claims. We work with our clients to investigate and resist unfounded commercial and property losses, before and after litigation.
