Being Sued for Construction Defects Is Stressful.
As soon as you are sued or threatened with a lawsuit, your natural inclination is to contact your insurance company to either pay for the damage or pay for your legal defense. Resist that urge and contact a lawyer instead.
Johnston Law Firm, P.C., works to protect the rights of contractors and subcontractors in Oregon and Washington.
If you contact your insurance company, the company will start a file and begin to accumulate data to find a reason to deny your claim. If you retain an attorney first, you will be better protected.
Having Your Insurer Deny Coverage Can Be Worse
Often, when a lawsuit is brought against a construction contractor, the insurance company will deny paying for your legal defense, while subsequently denying to pay for any settlement or judgment against your company. Although the insurance company will argue several reasons why it is denying your claim, we will aggressively fight each reason. You can count on us to have your best interests in mind, while we seek to make your insurer pay for your defense and for any settlement on your behalf.
As you are defended on the underlying claim by your appointed defense counsel, we will continue to work with your insurer to make sure they honor their obligation to pay for any settlement or judgment against you. That allows you to focus on running your business.
