Insurance Coverage

Rescission Actions | Bad Faith & Unfair Claims Practices | Duty to Defend | Scope of Coverage Claims

As experienced and strong advocates for our clients, Duffy & Sweeney attorneys litigate insurance issues and coverage questions in both court actions and arbitrations involving an array of insurance products such as life, property and casualty, marine, and D&O policies.

Frequently, carriers are represented by large, national law firms that aggressively defend their denial of coverage.  Duffy & Sweeney insurance litigation lawyers have successfully overcome their efforts, reversing carrier denials and effectively establishing coverage.  We have secured statutory penalties in cases involving unfair claims practices.

Our office is based on South Main Street in Providence, Rhode Island in the rapidly developing waterfront / I-195 region, connecting the East Side to Downtown and the Knowledge District. Contact us at 401.455.0700.
