Insurance Coverage & Bad Faith

Insurance companies face major issues daily regarding complex coverage issues and claims in a highly-regulated industry. Insurance coverage and bad faith lawyers analyze insurance carriers’ contracts and policies when disputes arise, providing counsel and representation in defending coverage and bad faith actions.

The Bush + Ramirez insurance law team has handled all types of disputes and defended insurers aggressively against allegations of bad faith, violations of state insurance codes, deceptive trade practices, negligence, and fraud, among others. 

Our approach is not only methodical, it is strategic and smart so that our clients can rely on us to assess the risks they face and provide the appropriate robust defense. We provide timely advice and assistance to insurers based on our deep knowledge and experience regarding the insurance industry and our decades of experience. 

We have a strong track record of successfully litigating cases in both state and federal courts. For example, courts found no coverage in these cases litigated by our attorneys:

  • Court found no coverage under a commercial general liability policy for plumber’s helper killed by a tiger from unrelated business. 
  • Court found no coverage under a CGL policy for allegations of “negligent discharge of firearm” after a security guard fired 41 shots at a person trying to run down the security guard in a truck.
  • Court found no coverage under a CGL policy for alleged sexual relations with a minor.

We provide insurance carriers with:

  • Sophisticated insurance coverage analysis on multiple lines of risk
