Insurance Defense Attorneys

Abrams Fensterman, LLP has multiple departments devoted to defending claims of personal injury, wrongful death, property damage, and medical malpractice in all five counties within the City of New York, as well as the counties of Nassau and Suffolk. Our insurance defense attorneys routinely represent major insurance companies, small and mid-size insurers, and self-insured organizations, including Nationwide Insurance, American Transit Insurance Company, Bay Ridge Automotive Management Corp., Physicians’ Reciprocal Insurers (PRI), Admiral Insurance Company, Federation of Jewish Philanthropies (FOJP), Combined Coordinated Counsel, Inc., Atlas Global Liberty Insurance Company, Western Beef Supermarkets, Sato Construction Company Inc., Borough Construction Corp. and municipal agencies and authorities. We have represented clients associated with Travelers Insurance (both bond and other insurance) and One Beacon. We also represent thousands of bonded self-insured transportation companies, and their principals. Often, our firm has been called upon to defend insureds in high exposure cases, as well as complex multi-carrier litigations involving additional insureds, excess insurers, reinsurers and reimbursement carriers. In addition, our firm is experienced with ERISA, ERISA litigation and STOLI life insurance.


Relying on our depth of skill and expertise in insurance defense, our clients trust us to develop and pursue successful, aggressive, and creative defense strategies. We credit our success as defense attorneys to the thorough preparation and team work between the carrier, the insured, and the firm. These collaborative efforts have frequently enabled us to prevail on pre-trial dispositive motions and favorable settlements, which saves our clients the costs of trial.


Recent matters our insurance defense attorneys have successfully handled include:

  • Construction accidents involving New York State Labor Law §§ 240(1), 241(6) and 200
  • Premises liability
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Property damage
