Insurance Defense Law

Insurance fraud and arson have always been the central issues in the majority of our insurance cases.  We represent insurance companies in all areas of fraud and arson including:

We take cases from the early stages such as examinations under oath, analysis or opinion letters.  We will always give you our honest input as to whether we believe the case is fraudulent, explainable or provable.  Most of the cases we deny after an EUO never come back.  However, when they do, we will litigate the cases from the Complaint to trial, settlement or appeal. Dunlap Kucmierz has specialized in insurance fraud and arson litigation for over 30 years.

Of course, in all cases involving possible insurance fraud, the goal is to determine the truth while exposing conflicting statements where fraud exists. Our experience in these cases can help in working alongside the insurance company to make the right decisions on which cases to pursue and how to go about it. We know that the insurance company's position can best be advocated with accurate analysis of the facts and a listening ear to what the adjuster and investigator have observed. Furthermore, we enjoy zealous advocacy of fraudulent claims to create a deterrent to this costly criminal behavior.

Educating our clients has always been an important part of our practice.  Private seminars geared to trends and desired emphases of our insurance clients help to build relationships and raise the bar in the fight against fraud.  Rod Dunlap has been a featured speaker on for the International Association of Special Investigative Units, National Business Institute, and National Association of Insurance Commissioners. He also has provided numerous seminars for insurance company clients focusing on the issues desired by each individual client. Of course, education in fraud is something we learn from our clients and our experience every day as emerging trends and recurring motives reveal themselves in each new case.
