Page Content

For many years, Kennerly Montgomery has represented insurance companies, their insureds, as well as self-insured clients, with counsel and legal defense in many types of claims in a wide range of cases involving insurance coverage, bad faith claims, worker's compensation, and auto and premises liability.

Property and Casualty Defense

Our defense team of lawyers has worked for many insurance companies, both national and local, representing parties in lawsuits involving accidents, premises liability, fire loss, maintenance defects, construction defects, and product liability. Kennerly Montgomery defends individual homeowners and motorists. We assist owners of commercial property, retail spaces, and businesses, including restaurants, shopping centers, and apartment complexes to name a few. Claims are often exaggerated, and questionable and unnecessary expenses are involved in medical treatment and repair of damaged property. At Kennerly Montgomery we investigate every case thoroughly to achieve the proper result.

We handle a wide variety of coverage issues, including personal injury, construction defect, automobile and uninsured motorist, personal injury protection, homeowners, environmental, property, products, completed operations, and E & O and D & O issues.
