Insurance & Tort
Cavanagh acts for numerous property and casualty insurers. They retain us to represent their insureds (both individuals and commercial entities) or the insurers themselves in various types of litigation. These include personal injury claims, products liability, subrogation, commercial insurance, automobile accidents, occupier’s liability and construction disputes.
We also represent individuals in both personal injury litigation and in coverage disputes with non-client insurers.
The firm is regularly consulted about insurance coverage issues and its lawyers have acted as counsel on some of the leading coverage decisions of the Superior Court and the Court of Appeal. Stephen Cavanagh is one of a small number of Ontario lawyers who provide coverage advice to the professional liability insurer for lawyers.
