Insurance Coverage

Timothy D. McGonigle has over the years successfully established policyholders’ rights to insurance benefits in many complex insurance disputes. In many of those cases Mr. McGonigle has persuaded the Court that the insurance company’s denial of all insurance benefits to the policyholder was unreasonable and wrong. For example, in the Court of Appeal decision of Thompson v. Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company, a case of first impression in California regarding an insurance company’s obligation to cover mold damage, Timothy D. Mcgonigle established that the mold exclusion in the Fireman’s Fund policy did not prohibit coverage for all resulting damages caused by defective workmanship to the policyholder’s roof which resulted in water and mold damage.
