First Party Property
From the initial claim notification through trial, WCM attorneys have helped to guide insurers with property claims ranging from the simple to the complex. Our vast expertise spans the gamut of losses, including damage to buildings, infidelity, damage to works of art, the theft of millions of dollars of diamonds, significant cargo claims, and inland marine losses, including motor truck cargo, builder’s risk, and contractor’s equipment.
WCM lawyers provide legal advice during the claim investigation and conduct examinations under oath when necessary. We also participate in appraisals, arbitrations, and mediations to assist with the resolution process. And when litigation has been filed, we have represented insurers in cases across the country in declaratory judgment actions, breach of contract suits, and bad-faith claims. WCM attorneys have tried first party matters and have participated in appeals in state and federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court.
