Representing Contractors Against Insurance Carriers In Southern California

For many contractors, dealing with insurance carriers is a major headache. Multiple carriers may be involved. The law requires particularized notice and specific time periods for pursuing insurance claims.

You don't need to navigate this complicated area of law on your own. We can deal with insurance issues on your behalf. Our attorneys are experienced in handling all types of insurance-related disputes for contractors, including:

  • Failure to defend
  • Bad faith claims
  • Breach of contract
  • Indemnity claims
  • First-party and third-party insurance claims
  • Insurance claims for injuries on the work site
  • Construction defect claims involving multiple carriers
  • Restoration contractors' claims and insurance disputes
  • Mechanics' liens and payment disputes

In many cases, we leverage the strengths of our clients' positions to resolve these claims effectively and quickly outside of court. At the same time, however, we are aggressive litigators who are not afraid to take claims to trial when necessary.
