Unfortunately, there has been a dramatic increase in instances of denial of coverage by insurance companies when an insured makes a claim. Reasons for denial range fom an exclusion in the policy (liquor liabilty exclusion, assault and battery exclusion, firearms exclusion, misrepresentation in the application process). This results in the insured being left uncovered by insurance in a lawsuit. We have been very successful in suing the insurance company to make them defend the insured and even pay the claim.
