The Law Offices of Arthur K. Smith provides focused, aggressive and effective representation in personal injury matters throughout Collin County and the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, including cases involving premises liability, products liability, vehicular accidents and all manner of catastrophic injuries.
As experienced courtroom litigators, we understand how to value a case and prepare for a trial that is geared toward obtaining the best possible outcome, if the case cannot be settled for that value. Our intense preparation works to maximize the chances for such a settlement, and means that if the case needs to be resolved through trial instead, we will be fully ready in every way to take on every challenge involved.
A threshold matter for the insurance company in any insurance claim is to determine whether the claim is covered or not. This may involve a determination of whether the policyholder is in good standing and has complied with the terms of the policy in making a claim, such as providing proof of loss or timely notice of a third party claim, as well as investigating the incident itself to determine it falls within the scope of the policy.
Our firm applies an in-depth coverage analysis and provides the client with an opinion letter containing our professional judgment regarding the application of the policy to the facts of the matter. Insurers may utilize this information as part of their risk management or loss mitigation strategy in determining whether to approve or deny a claim or defend or settle a third-party claim. If the issue remains in dispute, we can represent the client in coverage litigation, including seeking a declaratory judgment or other proceedings, or litigating the underlying case under a reservation of rights, preserving the coverage issue for later resolution, if necessary.
