We Defend Insurers and Insureds in All Types of General Liability Matters

A significant portion of our practice is devoted to representing individuals, businesses, and governmental entities in general liability matters. Our lawyers rely on extensive litigation and appellate experience to provide effective representation at trial and on appeal—experience which includes representing prominent clients in jurisdictions throughout Florida.  These clients include the City of Orlando, Orange County, the University of Central Florida, Sunbelt Rentals, Frontier Airlines, Costco, Progressive Insurance Company, the Orlando Utilities Commission, and many others.

Our General Liability Practice

We handle all types of third-party claims and litigation arising under self-insured programs and general liability insurance policies. We also handle claims seeking automobile, professional liability, and other relevant types of coverage. With a lineage that dates back to the 1920s, we have successfully defended insurers and insureds in cases involving all types of claims—including (but not limited to):

  • Automotive accidents (including truck and other commercial vehicle accidents)
  • Bad faith litigation
  • Construction defects and other construction-related claims
  • Legal, medical, and other forms of professional malpractice
  • Personal injury and wrongful death
  • Premises liability
  • Products liability
  • Property damage
  • Unfair competition

In addition to handling third-party general liability claims, we defend insurance companies against first-party claims. This includes claims involving coverage opinions, coverage disputes, and more. In all cases, we take the same detail-oriented approach, and our lawyers rely on their extensive experience in the general liability arena to provide efficient and strategic legal representation focused on fully protecting our clients.

Practical Insights from Broad Experience in General Liability Litigation

While our practice today is devoted to defense representation, several of our lawyers have significant prior experience as plaintiff’s counsel in general liability litigation. As a result, in addition to knowing what it takes to win from the defense perspective, we also know how plaintiffs’ attorneys position their clients’ cases for settlement. We rely on these insights to execute comprehensive defense strategies from the outset of each engagement, and we make clear from the beginning of each case that we are fully prepared to fight to protect our clients through trial and on appeal if necessary.

We are seasoned litigators who do not shy away from difficult cases. We leverage our lawyers’ experience and our firm’s resources to protect our clients by all means available. If this sounds like your type of law firm, we invite you to contact us to learn more.
