Insurance Dispute Solutions For Property Owners

A damaged property, whether by wildfire, flood or storm, can severely upend a person’s life, compromise their income and put their future in question. A denied insurance claim only makes things worse.

At The Law Office of William Stanger, Bill works tirelessly with his clients to resolve insurance dispute issues.  Bill’s first job as an attorney was insurance defect defense – where insurers sue other insurers to figure out who needs to pay for faulty construction.  He became very familiar with the murky legal concepts of “indemnity” and “subrogation,” and knows how insurance companies think and how they litigate cases.  This experience helps Bill resolve legal issues between insurance companies and policy holders, including business owners, homeowners and homeowner associations (HOAs). There are liability insurance issues that Bill hasn’t seen.

Common Insurance Disputes For Landowners

Since leaving his insurance defense job, Bill branched out into other kinds of insurance disputes, including property damage and accident (fire & flood) disputes, title insurance disputes, and the related construction and development disputes that go with them.  Bill can help resolve the following property insurance disputes:

  • Fire and water damage disputes
  • Denied claims appeals
  • Bad faith denial of claims actions
  • Personal counsel for cross-actions
  • Subrogation and indemnity actions
  • Title insurance disputes including boundary lines and easements
  • Cumis counsel*

*Cumis counsel can be chosen by the insured when their insurer has a conflict of interest, most commonly occurring when an insurer refuses to settle in good faith within policy limits. This type of representation is named after the 1984 court case San Diego Navy Federal Credit Union v. Cumis Insurance Society, Inc., that established the insured’s right to independent counsel.
