Analyzing a Claim

Over the years, many insurers have sought our advice when issues arise concerning the validity of a claim and whether allegations therein would fall under a policy’s coverage. Often, complex personal injury cases require a detailed factual analysis to determine which parties are liable – and, if so, to what extent.

In Indiana, liability can be assigned wholly or in part to parties in a case. In assessing a claim against an insurer, we examine whether factors exist that could shift the burden of blame away from your insured.

Staying on Track

In any personal injury claim, we always examine the alleged injuries, their associated treatment costs and the likelihood of those injuries causing long-lasting damage. We utilize our long-standing relationships with medical and technical experts to investigate the claim and develop defense strategies.

Our trusted paralegals are an integral part of our overall insurance defense strategy, performing essential tasks and freeing up time for attorneys to focus on the facts of the case.

This approach helps us minimize billable attorney hours in insurance defense cases. We also keep costs down by using paperless communication, so you can be up to date on all cases and we can ensure the client and insurer are both apprised of all developments.


When a case cannot be resolved outside the courtroom, our attorneys know how to use sophisticated re-creations to illustrate the events stated in a claim. Whether it’s a video that reconstructs the events leading up to a car crash or a three-dimensional model that shows how a house fire originated, the tools we use as litigators are often fundamental to achieving a favorable outcome for insurers.

Good Relationships

We recognize the delicacy of balancing the needs of the insured with an insurer’s objectives. Maintaining professionalism and addressing the various needs of all parties involved is a skill honed through practice. We understand that different types of insurance may involve different issues, and we are experienced in challenges associated with policies such as health, life and disability insurance, commercial general liability, professional liability, and automobile and homeowner’s coverage.
