Insurance and Tort Claims

Skillful Hartford Insurance Defense Attorneys

Insurance defense is about 80 percent of what we do at Regnier, Taylor, Curran & Eddy. Our connection to the insurance industry, in Connecticut and nationwide, dates to our firm’s founding in 1936, when we served our first client, the Hartford. We have served as “boots on the ground” locally for insureds, businesses and individuals. While we serve, we also maintain our most valuable attribute: independent thought. Our objective approach can be a valuable asset in disputes which have frayed emotions.

Cases include all claims types and coverage issues associated with both personal lines and commercial lines. The core of our work is personal injury claims, including motor vehicle accidents and premises liability, workers’ compensation claims and wrongful death defense. We resolve homeowners insurance disputes. We handle cases in state and federal courts, and also at the appellate level.

This is a short list of the kinds of cases and situations our attorneys engage in:

  • Defective products liability
