The construction industry is a high-risk industry. Personal injuries can occur, as well as property damage: to the construction project itself from rain, landslides and other perils, and to neighboring properties from activities performed on the construction site. Because of the inherent economic risks of construction work, it’s important for all parties to have proper insurance.
The starting point is making sure that the right kind of insurance coverage is obtained to provide insurance protection to all parties involved in the construction process. But this is only the first step in protecting participants in the construction process. Just because you file a claim does not mean that it will be automatically accepted or that you will be fairly compensated. On the contrary, insurance companies have strong financial incentives to deny claims and pay out the least possible benefits even for the claims that they accept.
That’s why it’s important to have an experienced lawyer to help you get the proper scope of insurance coverage and payment in full for any covered claims. Gregory R. Shaughnessy has extensive experience in insurance coverage in the San Francisco Bay Area, primarily representing parties seeking benefits under their insurance policies.
