Insurance Defense

Insurance defense has been central to the litigation practice at Rhoades McKee since the founding of the firm. We regularly address coverage issues, ranging from uninsured motorist claims to pollution exclusion issues. We represent insurers in bad faith claims and in subrogation matters.

Most of our work involves representation of insurers and insured in lawsuits. Types of cases we regularly handle include but are not limited to:

  • Medical, Legal and other Professional Malpractice claims
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Wrongful death claims
  • Defense of Real Estate Brokers and Sales Agents
  • Employer’s Practice Liability
  • Products liability claims
  • Premise liability claims
  • Defense of municipalities and school districts in a broad range of matters

Our insurance clients benefit from the breadth and depth of our experience and our common sense, cost-effective approach. Because Rhoades McKee is a full service law firm, our insurance defense attorneys are able to obtain critical input from other Rhoades McKee attorneys who practice business, tax, real estate, environmental, education, probate and family law.   Our clients also benefit from the support of experienced paralegals, some of whom have medical training as registered nurses.

Not only are we experienced in trying cases before judges, juries and administrative tribunals, but we also guide our clients through arbitration and mediation proceedings in an attempt to seek a reasonable out-of-court settlement. While we make every effort to resolve our client’s case prior to trial, if it is necessary to take the case to a judge, jury, or administrative tribunal, our defense attorneys are experienced and highly skilled litigators.

Our record of success in the courtroom speaks for itself. If an appeal is necessary, or the opposing party has filed an appeal, our appellate attorneys are fully prepared to brief and argue our client’s case before any federal or state appellate court.

how may we help you?
