Insurance Defence

B.C. Defence Lawyers

Insurance companies are asked to pay large claims every day, and, while some may be legitimate, a significant number are not. In some cases, an insurance company may be required to pay a claim that should be covered by another party. In others, the insurance company might rightly deny a claim only to have the insured file a lawsuit to collect on it.

Regardless of what type of dispute is at hand, it is important for the insurance company to have a strong defence team with the ability to protect its interests above all else. At the law firm of Grant Kovacs Norell, our Vancouver insurance defence lawyers defend insurance companies in all types of first- and third-party claims as well as subrogated matters.
