Insurance Defense Litigation

Texas Insurance Defense Law Firm

Businesses, insurance companies and individuals can all be sued for personal injury and property damage claims arising out of auto and truck accidents, defective products, unsafe premises, catastrophic energy industry accidents and exposure to various chemicals.

Depending on the type of claim, these cases can involve thousands of claimants and potential exposure in the billions of dollars. From our offices in Midland, Texas, Cotton Bledsoe regularly provides aggressive defense against these types of claims. We handle defense litigation both on behalf of insurance companies and companies that are self-insured or that choose for other reasons to handle their own defense.

Personal Injury

Our personal injury defense lawyers have a record of successfully defending businesses, insurance companies (first and third party claims), and individuals sued for a variety of personal injury, wrongful death, and survival claims. These claims can include motor vehicle accidents, products liability, premises liability or catastrophic energy industry accidents.

A Nationwide Practice in Toxic Torts Defense

Cotton Bledsoe has defended hundreds of toxic tort cases throughout Texas, Mississippi and the rest of the nation. Toxic tort cases often involve thousands of claimants and potential financial exposure in excess of one billion dollars.

Our clients in this area of the law include owners and operators of refineries and pipelines, manufacturers, retailers, and employers involved in asbestos and silicosis injury litigation, and the insurance companies that cover such parties.

Defense of Products Liability Claims

Cotton Bledsoe's clients include national and international corporations — and their insurance companies — facing consumer lawsuits based on products liability claims. In our product liability defense practice, we also provide invaluable consulting services to help companies through the complex process of releasing a product to market and insulating themselves from product liability claims.

Insurance Coverage Litigation

Many of our insurance company clients depend on us to help them limit or eliminate their liability for claims that arise out of situations not covered by a particular insurance policy. These claims can arise in the arenas of personal injury, pollution damage, third-party actions and oil field accidents. This branch of our insurance defense practice assists with the interpretation of policy language to the benefit of our insurance company clients and, where necessary, the litigation of that language.

Cotton Bledsoe's insurance defense attorneys assist our insurance company clients, or their insureds, by using sophisticated negotiating techniques and aggressive litigation advocacy to limit or eliminate our clients' financial liability — in cases both simple and complex.
