The Pinto Coates Kyre & Bowers firm began as an insurance defense firm, and much of its practice still is insurance defense, where we represent and defend insureds in lawsuits that have been instituted against them. An individual or company can be an insured under all types of insurance policies, including commercial general liability (CGL) policies, directors and officers (D&O) policies, homeowners policies, and motor vehicle policies. The types of claims that are involved in insurance defense are wide-ranging, and cover the extensive areas over which insurance can cover, from motor vehicle accidents to products liability, from slip-and-fall incidents (premises liability) to trademark and patent infringement, from professional liability to construction defects, and insurance defense includes cases involving personal injuries and property damage allegedly caused by the negligence of the insured, as well as many types of business losses. The cases can be fairly simple or extraordinarily complex. Our insurance defense attorneys can, and do, handle almost all types of insurance defense claims.
