Skilled Policy Consulting and Legal Advice
Insurance policies are interwoven with numerous exceptions and exclusions that often seem contradictory and can be difficult to interpret. We are often called upon to review policies for our carrier clients to determine if the policy covers or protects an insured for a particular circumstance. Drawing on our industry experience, we interpret policies for insurers and advise on issues such as whether to compensate the insured or pursue defense litigation.
When to File a Declaratory Judgment Action
In instances when an insurer issues a denial of coverage or decides to defend the insured under a reservation of rights, it may be appropriate to pursue a declaratory judgment. A declaratory judgment is a proactive step that can help clarify the legal obligations of the insurer. There are several issues to consider in deciding whether to file such an action, and the procedures can vary widely depending on the local jurisdiction. Our lawyers practice regularly in venues throughout the Illinois, and our familiarity with the local courts gives our clients a significant advantage in declaratory judgment actions.At Brady, Connolly and Masuda, P.C., we understand that no two cases are exactly alike and that unique circumstances present frequent challenges in interpreting the coverages and exclusions of a policy.
