Third-Party Liability Claims
Our attorneys have advised, counseled, and represented clients in regard to third-party liability claims with excellent results. An example of a third-party negligence claim could be a motor vehicle accident or motorcycle accident as well as a pedestrian injury. Other examples of third-party liability claims are injuries caused by defective products, failure by a third-party to properly maintain equipment, and/or injuries caused by vendors and contractors.
Often, representation of our clients is two-fold in that we are able to assist them with respect to their first-party claim so that they are able to maximize monetary amounts due to them under their own insurance policies, where applicable. In addition, we can assist them in the third-party liability context where the negligence or wrongful conduct of another party has caused them property damage or injury. Finally, in serious personal injury cases, we are often called upon to assist our clients as well as other law firms in the collection of uninsured and underinsured motorist proceeds.
Biller, Sachs & Robert has successfully resolved many high-value liability claims. Where applicable, we will obtain as much insurance coverage as possible, and where your insurance coverage may be inadequate or insufficient to cover damages you may have suffered as a result of the wrongdoing of another, we will diligently and vigorously pursue your uninsured claims, as well. Our firm has handled many claims where property owners have suffered damages as a result of the negligence of a contractor. Where the damages are covered under our client’s own insurance policy, we represent them in connection with their own claims and in connection with obtaining maximum benefits from their contractor’s insurance company.
With over thirty years of experience, Attorney Biller and his firm are often called upon to advise and assist their clients in highly complex and high-value insurance claims. Although our clients are often given a choice with respect to the terms of their representation, a majority of the work provided in the insurance coverage and personal injuries area is on a contingency basis, meaning our firm only gets paid if our clients do.
