Insurance Coverage, Bad Faith, and Unfair Claims
Gallagher Sharp is one of the leading insurance coverage firms in Ohio. Our highly experienced attorneys frequently advise insurers during the claim investigation stage, provide coverage opinions, assist in examinations under oath, counsel on avoiding bad faith, defend extra-contractual claims, and handle complex litigation. Our claims and coverage attorneys have litigated complex coverage matters at all levels of the state and federal courts in Ohio and in numerous other jurisdictions. We are skilled at identifying issues, proposing solutions, and, when necessary, litigating complex and novel issues to final resolution. Gallagher Sharp attorneys regularly represent insurers in uninsured/underinsured motorist claims, fire losses, and other first-party claims, and also serve as monitoring counsel. We are often retained to strategically litigate coverage issues with the goal of establishing precedent, and we have done so for our clients many times in the Supreme Court of Ohio and in the federal circuits. In cases where settlement is appropriate, we work closely with our clients to negotiate a favorable resolution. Our driving goal is to provide the most efficient and cost-effective representation to our insurer clients, while maintaining the high quality they deserve and expect.
