Insurance Defense Litigation

Insurance companies have sought out our trial lawyers for decades, especially when the exposure is high and so is the likelihood of going to trial. Frequently, insurers come to us after settlement efforts have been unsuccessful, and trial is imminent. We’re adept at quickly preparing for trial by marshaling the necessary resources and focusing on the key issues in the case.

Our insurance defense attorneys represent local, national, and international insurance companies on a variety of matters in both state and national courts. Insurance litigation extends across numerous industries and possible liabilities. Due to our expertise in a broad spectrum of practice areas, Hartline Barger attorneys are uniquely equipped to meet these wide-ranging needs. We have a consistent and proven track record of successfully handling matters ranging from trucking/transportation to labor & employment, oil & gas, premises liability, and toxic torts.

We’ve addressed coverage issues that arise under standard policies and first party property policies, as well as many specialty coverages. These include standard litigation issues such as choice of law and forum non conveniens, and duty to defend conflicts. Our goal is to analyze efficiently with an eye toward minimizing litigation and future liability, thereby saving insurers fees both now and in the future.
