WHAT IS INSURANCE LITIGATION?
Insurance policies are contracts that are long and often confusing. And often the first time that they are read completely, is when a loss occurs. Since policies have to be written in general language, questions sometimes come up as to whether a loss is covered, if an exclusion applies, what the proper measurement of loss is, and more.
Insurance litigation involves the representation of insurers and policyholders in disputes about the meaning, scope, and effect of insurance policies and related contracts.
