Insurance & Insurance Defense

Taunton, Snyder & Parish has a long and established history of representing insurance companies and their insureds in state and federal court. The firm routinely handles insurance defense matters under all types of primary and excess policies, and of every type—from small claims to complex litigation. With 40 years of litigating third-party insurance defense cases, the firm has handled the full spectrum of general liability matters across a broad range of practice areas, including trucking/transportation, employment litigation/workers’ compensation, property/fire/casualty, construction, oil & gas, premises liability, toxic torts, and personal injury claims.

Our familiarity with the insurance industry means our attorneys are also adept at litigating first-party coverage disputes, as well as disputes over the handling of an insured’s claims that involve violations of the Texas Insurance Code, violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA), bad faith, fraud and breach of contract issues.

Whether a lawsuit has been filed or legal action is merely expected, our attorneys diligently pursue expedient and cost-effective resolutions of the matter while maintaining a progressive approach to each case. We accomplish this through the assistance of trained support staff and the collective experience of seasoned trial attorneys. By combining decades of experience with dynamic and creative strategies, our firm consistently achieves favorable outcomes for our clients in insurance defense matters.
