First Party Construction Litigation
Our attorneys help resolves disputes with your insurance company
Problems in a construction project can cause disputes between two parties, leading to construction litigation. These disputes are often between builders and property owners, with insurance companies ultimately paying any damages. This can lead to a further dispute between the builder and their insurance carrier over what damages are covered.
Eller Tonnsen Bach, LLC represents contractors, subcontractors, construction companies, building suppliers and other business in legal matters involving first party construction litigation. We understand the impact that construction disputes can have on companies and help them find resolutions that meet their needs.
In cases involving construction litigation, there can be a lot of money at stake. Lawsuits are very stressful, can drain your resources and put the financial future of your company at risk. When you have an insurance policy in effect, the insurance company has a duty to defend you against a claim.
Our attorneys protect your interests
You may assume that you are covered if any damages are awarded. But in some cases, an insurance company may deny coverage or only agree to pay a partial amount. This can put you in a tough financial position and can add stress to an already difficult situation.
Our experienced attorneys have a thorough understanding of insurance requirements in the construction industry and the issues that can arise in these types of cases. We also are very familiar with state and federal rules and regulations and how they can impact insurance claims involving construction disputes.
As your lawyer, we can carefully review your insurance policy to determine what type of coverage was agreed upon as well as what your payment should be in your current situation. We will also consider the insurance company’s position and design a legal strategy for responding to their denial.
Our legal team thoroughly investigates each case in search of the facts. We gather evidence, review documentation, interview witnesses and if needed, consult experts. This helps us build a clear and compelling legal argument for why the insurance company should be covering the claim filed against you.
