In automobile defense, our attorneys handle a full range of issues, including:
- Stacking of Coverage
- Permissive Use
An early, high quality origin and cause investigation can deliver several benefits to an insurer or self-insured.
- It may determine that the origin of the fire was not the particular product insured by the carrier or manufactured by the self-insured thereby eliminating liability.
- It could determine that the loss was of incendiary origin thereby implicating the insured and voiding the insurance policy.
- It may determine that the cause was an individual or product who has insurance thereby providing for subrogation recovery for the loss.
Hozubin, Moberly, Lynch & Associates has significant experience in all three of these. They have represented a number of carriers in claims beginning with the investigation at the scene working with fire department investigators, engineers, and professional photographers and other experts, through the pre-litigation statement phase, to trials and appeals.
