Calgary Insurance Lawyers Advising on Policy Disputes and Coverage Disputes
After property damage, a commercial loss, accident or other loss, individuals, organizations, and companies turn to their insurance policies to recover their financial and business losses.
In some cases, an insurer may require a coverage opinion to determine whether it is under a duty to provide a defence to their insured and or whether it has a duty to indemnify their insured for any loss, pursuant to an insured’s policy.
This can result in complex, technical, and lengthy disputes requiring assistance from lawyers with significant experience in such matters. At HMC Lawyers our Insurance Team provides coverage opinions and advice to our clients, both nationally and internationally, and actively represent our clients on coverage disputes.
