Tuttle Yick Wins Insurance Defense Coverage

Alex Banzhaf and Charles Mueller successfully obtained a defense from a client’s insurance carrier where a neighbor to our client’s development project alleged certain property damage from the construction. Our client’s insurance carrier disclaimed on the basis that the alleged property damage preceded the applicable policy period. We filed a coverage action against the carrier and showed evidence that the underlying complaint included allegations of property damage within the policy period, which triggered the duty to defend. The insurance carrier agreed to defend our client.
