Insurance Coverage and Appeals
Provo-Petersen & Associates also has considerable experience in handling commercial and personal lines coverage disputes for its clients. Members of the firm have comprehensive knowledge of the intent of coverage forms, the underwriting process, and risk management. An appreciation of underwriting and risk management is essential to the proper handling of coverage questions because insurance policies, and particularly policies issued to a business entity, are drawn to fit the particular needs of the insured.
The firm is frequently asked to provide coverage opinions, conduct EUOS, and defend coverage disputes in declaratory judgment actions and on appeal. Members of the firm have appeared before various state district courts and appellate courts in coverage matters on numerous occasions. To date, we have prevailed on the vast majority of these coverage matters, as well as claims alleging "bad faith" against our clients. We have successfully helped our insurance clients chart the right course on a variety of policy and coverage issues.
In an effort to reduce risk for our clients, we have assisted our clients in the revision of liability, personal, and commercial automobile policies, and have written and contributed to treatises and current case law updates on policy and coverage related cases and issues.
