Insurance Defence

Steinmans Trial Lawyers subscribes to the philosophy that the best advocates maintain perspective and balance in the practice of law. One of the ways Neal achieves balance is by acting for insurers.

For every plaintiff claiming damages there is a defendant whose degree of moral and legal culpability varies. There is also a surprising number of weak or frivolous claims that clog the courts, waste time and money, add to insurance costs for the general public, and bring disrepute to the administration of justice.

Neal enjoys defending against these claims and keeping people honest. As counsel for companies such as Canada Post, out-of-province insurers and self-insured companies, Neal plays a key role in assessing claims fairly and ensuring that “deep pockets” pay reasonable damages and then only when defendants are liable as a matter of law.
