Defending National Insurance Companies

Hassett & George has offices in Simsbury and Glastonbury, but our practice is not limited to clients in Connecticut. Our defense efforts for national insurance companies in claims disputes have earned respect from firms and companies throughout the country.

Attorneys Lou George and Julie Harris lead the team of attorneys in our insurance group practice. Our aggressive and creative pursuit of action for our national clients is a large part of the reputation for success that we have cultivated.

Litigation Management Strategies

Our attorneys try cases in all courts and have handled matters from presuit investigation through verdict and appeal. We work with our clients to develop a comprehensive strategy prior to undertaking any activity. In all cases, large and small, we work with our clients to identify the objective to be achieved and determine how best to manage resources efficiently to accomplish the client's objective. We will confer with the client, in each case, and memorialize litigation objectives and a plan to achieve those objectives at the outset of the relationship. We have defended clients in cases such as:

  • Automobile accident claims
  • Police defense
  • Professional malpractice
  • Slip-and-fall claims
  • Products liability claims
  • Insurance coverage
  • Fire loss and damage claims

There is no insurance claim or liability concern that we have not confronted, either in court or in the negotiation room. We set goals for our clients to minimize costs, and whether that means settlement or aggressive legal fights, we will prioritize our clients' wishes.

The Track Record You Want

The lawyers of Hassett & George have built an impressive record of success for our national insurance clients. It is a record that you can have faith in when you are in need of legal representation for an insurance claim. Two of our partners are graduates of the Litigation Management Institute program of the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance.

Apart from trial work, our attorneys routinely handle advice and recommendation requests, conduct mediations and arbitration hearings, and serve as mediators and arbitrators. We also advise clients on issues involving insurance coverage and have prosecuted and defended declaratory judgment actions. We have written and lectured nationally on the subject of rental vehicle law and have advocated in support of legislation affecting the rental vehicle industry and tort reform.

We are proud of the depth and breadth of our experience and our track record. Contact us today to learn how our experience and dedication can be put to work in defending your company's interests. Our office can be reached at 860-264-6715 or through our online contact form.
