Huntington Insurance Coverage Litigation Lawyer

Experience and Success in Insurance Coverage Litigation

West Virginia provides a unique challenge to insurers. Understanding West Virginia insurance law requires careful navigation of insurance policy language, court decisions, statutes, regulations and informational letters. Coverage decisions can be costly if not handled properly.

Jenkins Fenstermaker attorneys stay abreast of the ever changing legal landscape, including policy construction, statutory and case law issues, and claim handling issues. Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC, helps carriers respond to policyholder demands, investigate the underlying facts and provide a thorough legal analysis. The firm works with the foremost consultants at all stages of a claim and throughout the course of coverage litigation to ensure that the technical aspects of each case are addressed properly.

The increase in environmental and other mass tort claims over the past two decades has expanded complex coverage litigation. Jenkins Fenstermaker's attorneys are experts in handling all aspects of toxic and mass tort coverage matters. They routinely provide coverage opinions on cutting edge legal issues such as trigger and allocation methodologies; the number of "occurrences" potentially at issue; and damages calculations; as well as the myriad policy-based defense unique to each individual case. Jenkins Fenstermaker represents primary, excess and umbrella carriers well before the filing of a coverage lawsuit, the claims handling process, and extends through trial, settlement or any appeal.

The firm's experience allows it not only to resolve coverage disputes efficiently and effectively, but also to help prevent such disputes from arising in the first place. They provide preventative counseling and negotiation to avoid litigation.
