First Party Insurance

When an insurance company withholds benefits, denies claims, unnecessarily delays claims or fails to defend its insureds, it may be necessary to pursue a first party insurance lawsuit. First party insurance cases most often arise when a policyholder files a claim against his or her own insurance company to recover benefits under the policy he or she purchased and is wrongfully denied those benefits. These cases provide you with an avenue for ensuring that you receive the full insurance coverage that you purchased, and that your insurance carrier complies with the promises that it made in your contract.

The Inside Knowledge And Legal Insight Necessary For Success

At Terry & Kelly, PLLC, we provide clients in Austin and throughout Texas with the powerful representation they need to assert their rights and stand up to large insurance companies who attempt to escape their contractual obligations. Those who retain our firm work directly with Trent Kelly and Jim Terry — accomplished Austin insurance claim dispute attorneys — who stand by their side and put them on even footing with insurance carriers’ massive legal departments. As a former insurance defense lawyer, Trent knows what tactics these companies will use in an attempt to minimize the value of a claim and protect their bottom line; he and Jime use this insight and their experience to create effective counter-arguments and prevent our clients from being forced to accept less than they are entitled to by the terms of their insurance contracts.
