UM/SUM and No-Fault
Our no-fault insurance team has successfully defended both insurance companies and self-insured corporations in both the lower Courts and Supreme Courts of New York City and Long Island.
The firm’s approach is to aggressively defend these matters making ample use of summary judgment motions to dismiss those cases that have no legal basis while simultaneously avoiding the legal cost and uncertainty of trial. Beyond that, through our expertise, our team has secured numerous defense verdicts in no-fault matters at trial.
Additionally, our team has successfully litigated a wide range of no-fault issues in both the Appellate Terms and Appellate Divisions. We have made law on the issues of excusing errors in a denial of claim form, defeating an attempt to create unwarranted exceptions to filing late proofs of claim and upholding our client’s denials on missed IME grounds.
We also make use of our vast general liability experience to conduct extensive examinations under oath of no-fault claimants.
Additionally, our team has successfully defended many uninsured and underinsured motorist arbitrations by relying on the terms of our clients’ insurance policies and our keen understanding of the mandatory endorsement to obtain permanent stays of arbitration.
