Insurance Defense and Coverage

Advertising Injury Protection and the Cost of Defending Your Lawsuit

How It Works

  • The Feldman Law Group works closely with you and your insurance company to determine whether the defense of your lawsuit is covered under the advertising injury provisions of your company’s General Commercial Liability Policy.
  • Frequently, a plaintiff will allege infringement of copyright or trademark rights by virtue of a defendant’s act of advertising its products or services on the company website, catalog or line sheets.
  • The lawyers of the Feldman Law Group would be happy to assist you and offer a free consultation and review of your General Commercial Liability Policy and your allegedly infringing advertisements to determine whether a possibility of coverage exist under such a policy and whether your Insurer has a duty to defend your lawsuit and pay for your attorney fees.
