Defense and Indemnity Issues

A keen knowledge of insurance coverage is instrumental in securing defense and indemnity rights for clients, whether it be pursuant to a contract, insurance policy or under existing statutory authority.  Hunt Ortmann’s Insurance Group is well versed to handle all issues related to our client’s defense and indemnity rights in any scenario.

We can navigate making tenders to potentially responsible parties and insurers, and our expertise extends to named insured and additional insured status, ongoing operations versus completed operations coverage, Crawford defense and indemnity rights, allocation among insurers, and responding to reservations of rights and denials of coverage.

We often participate in mediation or other alternative dispute resolution to address these issues. Hunt Ortmann’s Insurance Group is also very experienced in litigating all of these issues if informal resolution is not an option.
