Insurance Dispute Litigation
"Abandon hope, all ye who enter here." This quote from Dante's Inferno aptly describes the feelings of architects, contractors, tradesmen, building owners and any other individuals who believe that insurance policies will protect them in the event of negligence. It is also the opening statement from a recent decision by Federal District Court Judge David C. Norton in the case of Bituminous Casualty Corp. v. R.C. Altman Builders, Inc ., No. 01-4267 (D.S.C. July 28, 2006), in which the Court interpreted the Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance policy for a general contractor in South Carolina. This case is just one of a series of decisions effecting the rights of homeowners, builders, tradesmen and architects alike. The Finkel Law Firm regularly handles the prosecution and defense of declaratory judgment actions involving the CGL policies of builders and subcontractors in South Carolina. Whether you are a homeowner seeking to fix your home or a builder looking to enforce your rights under a CGL policy, the Finkel Law Firm has the experience and knowledge to help you.
