Insurance Litigation


We hold insurers responsible for wrongful coverage denials, unlawful claim practices, and bad faith conduct, practices many insurers continue despite clear law on the duties of insurance companies in Montana. These practices include wrongful denial of coverage, failure to defend customers, and improper denial of the amount of coverage for which a customer has paid.

Our attorneys have successfully litigated with insurance companies over the last several decades and have secured tens of millions of dollars in insurance coverage that were wrongfully withheld. Our firm has taken part in many of Montana’s decisive insurance legal decisions and many of the most important insurance coverage disputes. We consistently triumph against insurance companies by applying our extensive experience, knowledge, and creativity to hold insurers accountable to their promises. If you feel your insurer has wrongly refused to provide you with the coverage you are entitled to, give us a call for a free consultation.

We litigate:

  • Insurance coverage denials
  • Claim denials based on false standards and procedures
  • Wrongful leveraging of insured’s vulnerability

Landmark Case Example:

Case Examples:

Ferguson v. SafeCo Insurance

Without notifying Ferguson of her right to be made whole before subrogation could be used to impair her auto damage claim, the Safeco Companies secretly asserted and recovered subrogation. On behalf of similarly situated Montana insureds, McGarvey Law successfully sued in a class action with Ferguson as the lead Plaintiff. McGarvey Law has successfully prosecuted similar “wrongful subrogation” class actions against several other insurers resulting in a recovery of over $7 million for Montana insureds.
