Insurance Coverage

Duncan & Sevin has experience in all areas of insurance coverage. Our attorneys have represented excess and primary insurers on coverage issues on the following policies:


  • Protection and Indemnity
  • Hull
  • Maritime Employers’ Liability
  • Builders’ Risk
  • Marine General Liability
  • Cargo
  • Charterer’s


  • Commercial and Personal Auto
  • General Liability
  • Pollution
  • Personal Liability
  • Commercial

Our attorneys have written coverage opinions and handled claims in litigation regarding all the above policies and when necessary, litigated the claims successfully to conclusion.

We are also experienced in evaluating indemnity agreements. Not only do we assert and defend claims for defense and indemnity, we draft and evaluate contracts for our clients because entering into the right contract is better than fighting over the wrong contract after an accident.

Recently, we won the attached decision on summary judgment, establishing our client’s builder’s risk policy did not provide coverage to the insured for the claims asserted. (pdf)
