Insurance Law

InsuranceInsurance is one of the most regulated industries in the U.S. That does not mean insurance companies pay every claim or handle it fairly each time. Insurance fraud is also possible and depletes resources, which makes insurance defense a heavily sought-after service.

Campolieto-Ruggiero Law Offices handles many types of insurance matters in northeastern Pennsylvania. It does not matter if your case is large or small, it will receive the same amount of personal attention. Your fender-bender which resulted in soft tissue injuries is just as important to us as the $3.5 million bad faith claim filed by one of our corporate clients.

Available For Many Claim Types

If you own a home, drive a car or run a business, chances are, you deal with insurance every day. A vast majority of the time, you pay your premium on time and everything continues without incident. However, there are also times when claims are mishandled.

We offer knowledge and experience in the following insurance matters:

Corporate – Your business may have insurance policies against liability, property damage, and other dangers of simply being in the stream of commerce. You may have car insurance if your business maintains a fleet of cars. No matter the reason, the results of having a claim denied or your insurance company refusing to pay out fairly can have devastating effects on your bottom line.

InsurancePlaintiff matters – Insurers may at any given time refuse to cooperate when you really their assistance most. Our attorneys can investigate the matter further and attempt to secure compensation for your loss.

Bad faith – You may have a bad faith claim against an insurance company if the documents make it clear a certain type of damage is covered but the company refuses to pay out. This area of law is relevant to any type of insurance, no matter the type of property or interest being protected.

If you find that you are on the adversarial side of a claim determination, call Frank J. Ruggiero, Esq. to review the facts and see what he can do for you. There is no reason you should settle for less-than-adequate settlements with an insurance company.

Insurance Defense Work

Since our breadth of knowledge is fairly expansive in insurance matters, we also offer insurance defense. If your company is facing a fraudulent claim or the plaintiff’s damages appear disproportionate to what happened, we can review the facts and see how to best defend you. That can include a courtroom battle but frequently, it is just a matter of agreeing on a fair settlement.

We can offer the same service if it is a claim against your insurance policies. Homeowner’s policies cover dog bites and dangerous premises conditions, but if it was not your dog who bit a victim or the person injured by your porch or front stairs was a trespasser, there are defenses that can prevent claim payout as well as an inflation of your insurance premiums.

For assistance with your insurance matters, contact Frank J. Ruggiero, Esq. at (570) 876-6901 to schedule a consultation.
