Georgia Insurance Coverage Information

Introduction

When an insurance company and an insured person (or organization) disagree whether their insurance contract covers a particular event or loss, the matter of insurance coverage is raised.

Attorneys who work on behalf of insurance companies practice Insurance Coverage Defense and advise companies as to their liabilities and how to handle claims.

Attorneys who work on behalf of insured individuals and organizations may assert Bad Faith claims against insurance companies for refusing to provide coverage required by an insurance contract.

It is important to distinguish Insurance Coverage disputes between an insurance company and its insured from cases in which an injured person or business may receive compensation from a defendant's insurance policy.

Insurance coverage disputes may also involve litigation between insurance companies for subrogation or indemnification. For example, a health insurance company may pursue reimbursement from a liability insurance company for medical expenses that arose out of a automobile accident.
