Insurance Defense Division

Wright, Finlay & Zak (“WFZ”) has brought together seasoned trial attorneys with experience in many areas of insurance defense. WFZ’s attorneys have decades of experience in personal injury defense, both commercial line and personal line, representing excess insurers and companies with Self-Insured Retention coverage. Its attorneys have represented doctors, lawyers, hospitals and other professionals in malpractice cases. Collectively, WFZ’s Insurance Defense Division has taken nearly 100 cases to trial, both bench and jury.

While trial experience is important, WFZ understands that trial is generally not the best result. With that in mind, WFZ understands the business goals of the insurance industry and has implemented practices to minimize the cost of defense and aggressively settle cases.

WFZ offers structured fees for high volume clients and will work with any claims management tool because it understands that file management and communication are the key to efficiency and, ultimately, successful outcome for its clients.
