For more than a century, Sugarman Law Firm has represented literally thousands of insureds and remains one of the oldest and largest insurance defense practices in Central New York. We defend insureds in a variety of types of matters including automobile accidents (including motor vehicle, motorcycle, and trucking accidents), premises liability cases, and work place accidents (including construction site accidents and claims pursuant to New York’s “Labor Law”), medical, architectural and engineering malpractice claims, claims against municipalities and school districts, and a variety of other matters. We also represent insurers in coverage disputes and prosecute subrogation claims.
Effective, efficient, and economically-sound litigation management is only possible when claims professionals, defense counsel, and insureds work together, communicate regularly, apply common sense, and make sound business decisions. Claims professionals, like attorneys, face constant deadlines and have to make timely well-reasoned decisions on a daily basis. Joint decision making at every step of the litigation process, thorough preparation, reporting and file documentation, and substantive timely case evaluations are the keys to successful verdicts, settlements, and arbitration awards. The right result requires the right defense counsel.
The Sugarman Law Firm’s litigation attorneys represent and regularly defend counties, towns, and villages across New York; Fortune 500 clients, including manufacturing and delivery companies; professionals, including accountants, attorneys, physicians, engineers, and architects; contractors and construction companies; food service businesses including bars, taverns, and restaurants; trucking and hauling companies; insurance carriers; residential homeowners, automobile owners, and small businesses; school districts; and colleges and universities.
Every litigation attorney at the Sugarman Law Firm is first and foremost a trial attorney. Although they have developed selected areas of expertise, all of these attorneys began practicing in general liability litigation, and each has continued to develop skills and expertise in this broad practice area. As a result, we have extensive experience and are well-versed in all types of liability claims.
