Insurance Defense Litigation

The attorneys of Taylor & Knight have a well-established reputation as a top tier firm for insurers seeking to provide their insureds with the best possible defense. Our attorneys have extensive experience obtained through representing thousands of insureds in hundreds of trials and in all forms of alternative dispute resolution. The attorneys at Taylor & Knight have broad experience defending the wide-range of claims that an insured individual or entity may face, including, for example, civil rights litigation, wrongful deaths, motor vehicle accidents, professional liability, real property disputes, animal attacks, construction accidents, negligence, trespass, and premises liability actions.

The deep and broad experience of Taylor & Knight attorneys makes them both effective and efficient. Our attorneys understand that each case and client is unique and that a cookie-cutter approach does not advance the best interests of the insured or the insurer. Upon receipt, each case is quickly evaluated to develop and appropriate defense plan and frequently evaluated thereafter to ensure that all actions taken work toward the best possible outcome for the insured in a cost effective manner.

While a careful consideration of the law and facts is essential for each case, there are other factors that greatly affect the value of the case and how it is handled. Taylor & Knight attorneys have handled cases in virtually every county in Middle and East Tennessee and have successfully tried jury cases in almost all of them. That provides Taylor & Knight attorneys with knowledge and relationships that can only be obtained through such experience. Thus, whenever an attorney from Taylor & Knight evaluates a case, or prepares a case for trial, he or she knows the inclinations and temperament of the judge, the demographics and biases of likely jurors, the strengths and weaknesses of opposing counsel, and unique local conditions that could affect the outcome of the trial.

Taylor & Knight shares each insurer’s commitment to providing its insured client the best possible defense and obtaining the best possible outcome. This may involve negotiation, mediation or trial. Whatever the method of resolution, any insurer can be confident that with Taylor & Knight it has retained attorneys that are experienced, respected, knowledgeable and successful to skillfully defend its insureds across the State of Tennessee.
