Many people and businesses pay insurance premiums for years only to have their claims denied when benefits are needed most. At Barker | Cook, we help clients contest the denial of their claims, and pursue legal action to force insurance companies to pay the benefits our clients' policies entitle them to.

Our attorneys thoroughly investigate the terms of the applicable insurance policy and the facts and circumstances surrounding the insured's claim to develop strong legal strategies that prevent insurance companies from paying benefits that are not legally due.
