Insurance Coverage and Defense in Virginia
Headed up by Janeen Koch, who has been a defense attorney for over 25 years, the insurance coverage and defense team at Chadwick Washington has decades of experience successfully representing insurance carriers, their policyholders and self-insured companies. We regularly defend both individuals and corporations in a variety of matters including automobile accidents, motor carrier cases, product liability, premises liability, D&O claims, and construction defect litigation.
We also counsel clients on a variety of coverage issues. We work with claims professionals in investigating, evaluating and handling coverage claims, draft coverage opinions, reservation of rights letters, coverage denial letters and represent carriers in prosecuting and defending declaratory judgment actions in state and federal courts.
Our philosophy in providing services to our insurance clients is to work closely with the claims professionals in developing an early litigation strategy, to maintain a collaborative approach in handling each claim, and to keep the carriers and their insureds consistently informed and involved at each step of the litigation process.
