“A client asked whether
I am the only lawyer who
answers his own phone and always
is available. When people trust us
with their legal matters, part of our
job is to keep them informed.”

Insurance Coverage

Insurance Coverage and Insurance Litigation Attorneys in Missouri and Throughout the U.S.

At Goldstein and Price, L.C., we counsel clients and litigate disputes about insurance coverage and bad faith. We also handle subrogation matters and counsel companies about a broad variety of insurance issues that affect their business.

We have represented companies regarding a broad array of issues related to comprehensive general liability, marine, pollution, cargo, professional liability, property, travel and other commercial and personal lines policies throughout the United States. We have avoided or minimized liability for our clients by obtaining summary disposition on bad faith claims, the enforceability of the pollution exclusion and late notice conditions, and the alleged obligation of an excess or umbrella underwriter to “drop down” in place of a primary carrier. Underwriting companies also frequently contact us for legal advice concerning policy language and claims handling, to prepare insurance coverage opinions and reservation of rights letters, and to prosecute or defend declaratory judgment and subrogation actions.

The following examples are representative of our practice:

  • C. Hager & Sons Hinge Manufacturing Co. v. Home Insurance Co., et al. No. CV99-N-1663-E, N.D. Ala., Eastern Div., reported in Mealey’s Litigation Report: Insurance, Vol. 16, #7, December 18, 2001 (obtained summary judgment for insurer in federal court, in Alabama, based upon late notice and the pollution exclusion);
  • Glickman, Inc. v. Home Ins. Co., 86 F.3d 997 (10th Cir. (Kan.) 1996) (obtained summary judgment for insurer in federal court in Kansas, affirmed on appeal, on bad faith pollution claim brought by the Anderson Kill firm);
  • In 2006, we obtained and collected a judgment in Utah for several hundred thousand dollars, for a subrogated insurer, in a case arising from damage to a piece of heavy equipment.
