05. Insurance Coverage/Defense
The Law Office of William C. Parler Jr.'s Insurance Coverage and Defense practice encompasses the full spectrum of litigation, for both insurance companies and self-insureds. The attorneys at The Law Office of William C. Parler Jr. devote substantial time to defending insurance industry clients and their insureds in toxic tort, medical malpractice, premises liability, negligent security and a range of other tort matters. We practice in state and federal courts throughout Maryland and the District of Columbia. In cases of insurance fraud, we thoroughly investigate claims and, where indicated provide a solid foundation for claim denial on the basis of fraud.
Additionally, we routinely address all facets of insurance policies, including duty to defend analysis, contractual coverage, policy conditions, "business risk" and "pollution" exclusions, and "personal injury" and "advertising injury" coverages. The attorneys at The Law Office of William C. Parler Jr. have in-depth experience in coverage analysis and litigation arising under first party property coverages, and in mass plaintiff and toxic tort cases involving exposures to substances such as lead, asbestos, mold, carbon monoxide and chemical exposure.
