Serving our clients' needs in the automobile field is one of the oldest practice areas at Marshall Dennehey. From the inception of our firm, we have serviced the insurance industry by both representing its insureds as well as the carriers directly in the first-party, PIP and third-party auto cases.
Our attorneys represent insurance carriers directly in UM/UIM, PIP, and other first-party automobile issues. In the UM/UIM arena, our unique regional presence allows the carrier to be represented by local counsel who are intimately familiar with the protocols and nuances of each county's local procedures and practices. For those who are familiar with the UM/UIM arena, this local presence and knowledge of affiliated members of the Bar can have a substantial impact on the final result of a claim. The Automobile Liability Practice Group works closely with members of the firm's Insurance Services and Special Investigation Practice Groups. Together, these groups provide practical solutions for all types of claims arising out of the use and operation of automobiles.
The attorneys in our Automobile Liability Practice are well experienced and established in third-party automobile liability cases, including the specific nuances with limited insurance policies, tort restriction statutes, and joint and several liability. They have litigated thousands of automobile liability third party cases, many of which have been taken to verdict.
We are aware of today's focus on securing sound legal services at reasonable fees. Our firm has grown because of our sensitivity in this area. Our trial lawyers take a practical, result-oriented approach to the cases with which they are entrusted. The firm retains competitive rates through task-appropriate delegation, which is consistent with the overall close supervision and client responsiveness required in automobile matters. We are also very willing to discuss, develop and implement alternative billing formats wherever possible.
