Civil Litigation

Civil Litigation

At some point, nearly all of us will experience a personal or business dispute. When these disputes escalate, resulting civil lawsuits can be costly, time-consuming and damaging to the reputation of both parties. At Bellotti Law Group, P.C., our civil litigation attorneys focus on resolving these cases quickly and efficiently, keeping our clients' best interests as the main priority. We swiftly identify the issues and immediately begin tailoring a unique plan to best achieve our clients' goals.

Our firm is recognized throughout Massachusetts as a pre-eminent civil litigation firm that provides top-quality counsel and representation to individuals and businesses. Our attorneys handle a wide array of civil matters, including:

Declaratory Judgments

A declaratory judgment often follows intricate, complex and technical litigation, where a court defines legal rights, duties and obligations between parties in a civil matter. We have obtained a number of declaratory judgments in our clients' favors, limiting (if not entirely eliminating) our clients' liability and financial responsibility in a wide range of matters.

Insurance policies and denials/limitations of coverage, in particular, are often at the center of a declaratory action due to their intricate nature and technical language regarding their scope, commencement, duration, geographic coverage, exclusions and other provisions that are in place to limit or void coverage in certain circumstances. Further, insurance providers' heavy reliance on representations of insureds often limits the rights, duties and obligations created under the insurance contract. Additionally, the facts surrounding a particular losses and the conduct of insureds before, during, and after a loss and subsequent claim often influence a court's decision.

No-Fault Litigation/Fraudulent Claims

One of the insurance industry's most costly and challenging issues is combating no-fault fraudulent claims. Our Boston civil litigation attorneys have met these challenges, and have defeated a wide array of fraudulent claims brought against insureds and insurance providers. We have successfully defeated a number of fraudulent bodily injury claims, fraudulent property claims, staged accidents, unreasonable and/or unnecessary medical treatment for alleged bodily injuries, and a wide array of other claims.

Insurance Coverage Litigation And Bad Faith Claims

We have amassed a record of success handling many different types of insurance coverage, including commercial and personal property, automobile, personal liability, umbrella coverage, commercial general liability, construction liability and others.

Insurance companies owe their insureds a duty of good faith and fair dealing, under each insurance contract. If this duty is breached, the insured policyholder may have an actionable claim against the insurance company. We have successfully handled a number of bad faith claims and employ cost-effective strategies to help insureds recover what they are contractually owed. Whether it is through skilled negotiation, alternative dispute resolution such as mediation or arbitration, or at trial, our skilled attorneys and resources allow us to handle the most complex insurance coverage cases.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

In addition to employing skilled settlement negotiations and meticulously preparing to litigate in court, all the way to trial when necessary, our civil litigation attorneys are also actively engaged in various forms of alternative dispute resolution, when it will be in the best interests of our clients.

ADR can have a number of advantages for clients, including being cost-effective means to resolve civil claims, a method of exploring a variety of legal avenues available to the client, neutral evaluation of claims and other tangible benefits.
