Attorneys Addressing Commercial General Liability Insurance Disputes
Business ventures of all sizes and types rely on commercial general liability (CGL) insurance to protect them in case of injuries and losses claimed by customers or anyone else who might hold the business responsible. Businesses carry this insurance precisely to pay for liability arising out of personal injury and property damage claims against them. However, disputes arise when insurers fail to make good on such claims for reasons such as:
- Allegations that a loss or injury was not the result of the insured’s actions or lack of action
- Existence in the CGL policy of exclusions
Conflicting views will assert or deny that exclusions in a particular policy do, in fact, rule out the duty of the insurer to pay damages for particular losses. Legal opinions become necessary, followed by negotiations, settlement conferences and, in difficult cases, litigation leading to trial.
California businesses served with claims by injured parties have a trusted and respected source of legal counsel on CGL issues at the Lesser Law Group in San Rafael and San Francisco. The firm’s broad experience in insurance law, including insurance coverage, is valuable for policyholders, brokers, agents and, in some cases, insurers.
