Insurance Coverage Litigation

Insurance Litigation for the Pacific Northwest

When insurers wrongfully deny coverage, Chenoweth Law Group, P.C., has a long track record of success in obtaining insurance coverage and compensation for policyholders through litigation. We believe effective insurance coverage advocacy requires in-depth examination of policy provisions and knowledge of insurance company practices. We do the research necessary to fully understand your policy and coverage exclusions and defenses raised by your carrier, then use our skills in litigation to seek the best possible result.

Our Portland, Oregon, lawyers understand that purchasing and maintaining insurance coverage can protect you from unwarranted and costly claims. However, that insurance is only valuable if your insurer provides coverage when you need it. Whether you are a commercial or residential construction contractor, homeowner, or business owner, we can help you obtain coverage for a wide variety of claims and losses.

Sometimes when your insurance company denies your claim, it is due to the negligence of your insurance agent or broker. Failing to identify gaps in coverage, failing to ensure you have adequate policy limits, and failing to procure the coverage you request when you request it can all have devastating results on your coverage. When these situations raise issues regarding the professional negligence of an insurance agent, Chenoweth Law Group, P.C., has the skills, know-how, and expert contacts within the industry to defend and prosecute claims.
