Comprehensive strategies and tactics to achieve clients’ objectives

This part of Weiss Law Office, S.C.’s practice provides extensive representation of insurance companies in disputes over the scope of their obligations under their policies.

Advising carriers on the scope of coverage afforded to their insureds in insured, uninsured, underinsured and other first and third part claims is a regular part of this practice. The work of the attorneys at our firm on these claims has brought about favorable changes in Wisconsin law on such important issues as the burden of proof to obtain discovery of alleged evidence of "bad faith" by insurance carriers to the timing of effective demands for appraisals and even insurance coverage for lawsuits claiming misrepresentation.

In Wisconsin, claimants are entitled to directly sue insurance companies for the alleged negligence of their insureds. Our attorneys use this "direct action" to seek judicial declarations of the scope of coverage that their clients have for the loss at issue. Our attorneys have successfully represented carriers and their interests based on both personal and commercial lines policies. We have done so in cases involving personal automobile policies and policy application misrepresentation issues to complex multiparty construction defect lawsuits, from the application of the business risk suite of exclusions to complex additional insured issues.

Experienced. Successful. Trusted.
