Protecting Builders’ Rights



Even though a lot of carefully planned work goes into construction, unpredictable things can happen while a project is being constructed. As a construction company, general contractor, or tradesperson working on a building project, you expect your construction insurance to protect you when a problem arises. If you file a claim with an insurer and your coverage request is denied, this can result in serious financial losses and severely impact your business.

Unfortunately, even if you faithfully pay your premiums, filing a claim and successfully getting your compensation can be complex. You can file an insurance claim, and your insurer might act in bad faith, deny your claim, or even approve it and underpay you. If you need to file a claim, we can help you. If you already have a denied claim, we can help you appeal it.

At Leverty & Associates Law, we have experienced construction litigation attorneys who will come to your aid. Our experienced attorneys will work to help you get a fair and just hearing. We will ensure you get the coverage you deserve and compensation for additional damages if the insurance company’s denial was due to bad faith.
