Insurance Recovery

Hanson Bridgett’s Insurance Recovery Group represents insureds/policyholders in obtaining insurance funds for a wide array of losses, claims, lawsuits/arbitrations, and regulatory proceedings. We have assisted our clients in securing many millions of dollars in insurance proceeds.

We often achieve practical resolutions of coverage disputes without the need for litigation. But when a negotiated resolution cannot be achieved, we have the experience and resources to litigate coverage disputes in a targeted and cost-effective manner. Our attorneys have successfully litigated coverage claims in courts throughout California and in other jurisdictions around the United States.
