Large Loss Insurance Subrogation
The Woodall Law Firm has a proven track record of obtaining significant subrogation recoveries for our insurance clients. We typically handle subrogation matters on a contingency fee basis because it allows us to evaluate the viability of subrogation claims with little or no cost to our clients. We assess cases quickly and efficiently and only prosecute claims with merit.
Ideally, our clients retain us as soon as they learn of a loss so we can coordinate the investigation and evaluate the case with our clients’ claims personnel, forensic consultants, and experts. Our early involvement maximizes our clients’ recoveries while reducing expenses because our attorneys perform investigative activities that adjusters or experts usually charge for by the hour.
Insurance Coverage Analysis & Opinions
In addition to large loss subrogation, our insurance clients hire us to provide insurance coverage analysis arising from a variety of insurance policies, including but not limited to Professional Lines (E&O), Motor Carrier Trucking, Property and Casualty, Energy and Power Generation, Marine, Cargo, and Inland Marine, “All Risk,” Builder’s Risk, Comprehensive General Liability, Auto Liability, Homeowners, Environmental and Manuscript forms.
We provide our clients with accurate advice on the rights and obligations of the parties to an insurance contract, and we routinely prosecute and defend coverage and bad faith lawsuits.
First and Third-Party Liability Defense
Our attorneys routinely handle first and third-party insurance defense cases. We aggressively defend these cases while keeping costs and fees as low as possible with an eye toward a quick and cost-effective resolution. However, if a reasonable settlement is impossible, we will try our case to a judge or jury. We are proven trial lawyers, not just litigators, and we are known for our ability to win at trial.
