Scahill Law Group P.C. Practice Areas

Automobile Litigation

We have over 30 years of experience handling automobile accident claims, including bodily injury, property damage, no-fault, and SUM/UM. On average, we resolve, through aggressive motion practice, and successful trial techniques, hundreds of claims per year saving clients millions of dollars in potential liability. Our diverse team of attorneys brings unique insights into litigating these cases. They include former prosecutors, investigators, and in-house counsel for large automobile insurance companies. As an added value to our clients, we also provide training and seminars to help insurance claims professionals evaluate and dispose of claims expeditiously.

No-Fault Litigation

Our No-Fault department has extensive experience investigating and resolving these claims efficiently. The team is particularly skilled at recognizing and establishing fraud.

In 2018, our No-Fault Division resolved over 3000 cases, with an exposure of $9.5 million dollars. $6.5 million from that exposure was eliminated by the great work of our no-fault team under the direction of Dave Tetlak and Lorraine Fingerhut.

An impressive 67.17% of the 2018 No-Fault cases we litigated, were dismissed or resolved in our client's favor, for total savings to our Insurance Carrier clients of $6,408,880.85.

Construction Litigation

Our attorneys defend construction accident claims against site owners, general contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers and other professionals. Our team is particularly knowledgeable about the broad liability imposed under New York State labor law provisions that apply to work related and construction accidents.

General Litigation

The firm defends our insurance carrier clients and insureds in a wide variety of personal injury and professional liability claims.

Labor Law Litigation

Our labor law defense practice litigates claims involving discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, retaliation and breach of employment agreements. We handle matters from large self-insured corporations as well as insurance companies.

Insurance Coverage Litigation

We represent insurance companies in coverage disputes arising from significant bodily injury and property damage claims. Our role encompasses counseling Insurance carriers on their legal obligations and defenses as well as handling litigated matters from inception through resolution.

Fraud Investigations

We have substantial experience conducting investigations of suspected fraudulent insurance claims. Our team includes several attorneys with an FBI, Military Department of Intelligence, police or other investigations background. Our use of state-of-the-art investigation tools, including social media investigations is particularly beneficial in identifying and proving fraud.

Premises Liability

We handle a broad range of litigation arising from the ownership or use of commercial or residential premises. These claims typically relate to security and hazardous conditions, but also raise additional issues of assumption of risk, notice, obvious and trivial defects, rights and duties of absentee landlords, and indemnity.

Uninsured Motorist/Supplemental Uninsured Motorist (UM/SUM)

Our extensive experience with automobile accident cases encompasses the unique issues of UM/SUM coverage. We advise insurers whether disclaimer, cancellation, contact, coverage or prejudice issues apply in a given case. We represent clients in litigation as well as at uninsured motorist arbitrations.

Appellate Practice

Our Appeals Bureau, led by Kerri Wehrheim, Esq., prosecutes and defends appeals in all New York State venues and Federal Court. We have successfully argued and prevailed in over 200 appeals including favorable decisions from the New York Court of Appeals and the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Our firm controls appellate expenses by expediting the appeals process and a collaborative effort from our attorneys in our Law and Motions Department.
