Insurance Litigation

Insurance Litigation in Upstate New York

Insurance laws are complex for one reason and one reason only: insurance companies want it that way. In fact the only two things insurance companies seem to care about being clear on are what you owe them and when.

My name is John Kingsley, and as a lawyer with more than 40 years of experience in New York State, I have seen insurers engage in more kinds of unfair dealing than I care to recount. Because of that, however — and because I have gone to trial on behalf of hundreds of previous clients — I am especially well-suited to protect your rights in almost any type of insurance litigation there is. Talk to me about your situation and how I can help.

My Insurance Litigation Practice

As an attorney, I practice throughout Greene, Columbia and Ulster counties in the Catskills region of New York State. I only represent policyholders in insurance litigation, never the insurance companies themselves. My practice includes claims involving many different types of insurance claims: auto, fire, homeowners', bad faith, disability, health, life, business, and workers' compensation.

Bad faith claims against insurers can be based on numerous grounds, including:

  • Retroactive underwriting
  • Failure to investigate claims
  • Failure to settle claims within policy limits
  • Failure to defend
  • Underpayment of claims
  • Delays in payment
  • Unreasonable denial of claims
  • Inadequate claims processing

Whatever the situation — my knowledge of this complex area of the law, my experience at trial and my familiarity with the courts of this area levels the playing field for you and your business or family. In addition, I handle most insurance-related litigation on a contingency basis — meaning that I am not paid for the legal services I provide unless I am successful on your behalf.
