Practice Areas

At Porter, Banks, Baldwin & Shaw, PLLC, we represent our clients in state and federal courts throughout Kentucky and in a variety of insurance defense matters:

Our law firm has been actively engaged in the defense of insurance carriers and their insureds in personal injury and property damage claims throughout Kentucky in both state and federal courts. Our attorneys have tried numerous cases in courts throughout eastern and central Kentucky. We have experienced litigators who can handle a broad range of claims including premises liability.

AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS
PREMISES LIABILITY

Insureds may file claims alleging violation of the Kentucky “Bad Faith” statute, the Unfair Claims Practices Act.  Insurance bad faith claims often arise when insured individuals receive a claim denial or a settlement offer which they allege is not consistent with their injuries and damages. Bad faith claims may also allege that the insurer unreasonably delayed investigation, unfairly postponed payments, or acted to purposely mislead policyholders.

Our attorneys work with insurance carriers using our experience to assist with the claims handling process to minimize bad faith exposure. Even if allegations have already been made, we can help insurers using mediation and settlement negotiations to avoid costly and protracted litigation.

Our law firm handles insurance coverage disputes arising from policy interpretation, scope of insuring provisions, notice provisions, exhaustion provisions, and defense and settlement provisions. Our attorneys also have litigated the applicability of a range of exclusions under these policies, including fraud, insured versus insured, prior knowledge, and prior notice, among others.

Our law firm has actively handled commercial claims for decades. We have represented clients in complex federal and state commercial litigation throughout Kentucky. We’ve handled a number of commercial disputes including breach of contract claims, indemnity claims, property damage claims arising from blasting operations, and breach of non-compete agreements.
