Negligence occurs when a party owes a duty of care to another party, fails to take reasonable care thus breaching its duty, and subsequently causes loss or damage to the other party.
In a perfect world, you will be insured for the accident or negligent act that the property damage or compensation claim arises.
Our litigation team at Potts Lawyers has decades of experience in all fields encompassed by insurance law.
We have acted on all sides, be it for the injured party, the insured party, insurer, or the uninsured respondent to the claim. It is this all round experience that makes us best suited to protect your interests, as we have the knowledge and insight into the tactical approaches utilised by each party in negotiating a resolution to the dispute.
Previously, our team has acted in insurance disputes incorporating various industries such as construction, transport, maritime, farming & agribusiness, medical & pharmaceuticals and the like.
Nowadays, our focus lies on defending negligence claims for insured, self-insured or uninsured clients. We have successfully argued indemnity or coverage for our clients under their respective insurance policies, or if no insurance policy will respond, we argue the minimum compensatory damages award possible all the while being conscious of the legal costs incurred by our client. Often, it is the exercising of a balance between settling a claim both cost effectively and time efficiently.
If you are facing an insurance dispute on an issue of indemnity, or a property damage or compensation claim allegedly arising from negligence negligent act, contact the litigation team for preliminary advice as to how we can assist you.
