Snell Legal can assist with all variety of commercial insurance coverage disputes and claims.  This includes coverage disputes over the duty to defend and indemnity for third party claims as well as first party claims for business interruption coverage and other types of coverage for the benefit of insureds. Often these coverage disputes result in litigation, in the form of declaratory judgment, bad faith, or breach of contract actions. Snell Legal has substantial experience in this area, working for both insurance carriers and insureds.

Greg Snell obtained a nearly $19,000,000 jury verdict against an insurance carrier for failure to defend and indemnify an insured business under the advertising injury coverage afforded by the policy. Similarly, Greg Snell obtained summary judgment, and prevailed on appeal, against an insurance carrier in a $300,000 claim for property damage on behalf of the local YMCA arising from the destruction of an Olympic sized pool caused by the negligence of a subcontractor performing repair work.  For additional information on these matters, and results obtained for clients generally, see insurance results.
