At Taylor Day, our insurance defense team defends the rights of the insurers and their agents and fights for a fair and just outcome in coverage disputes and unfair claim practices allegations.
We handle all matters your auto insurance company might encounter, including:

- Contractual matters related to coverage terms and limits
- Personal injury protection (PIP) defense claims
- Property damages to automobiles or other property

- Uninsured and underinsured motorists claims
Through our preemptive approach, we ensure your company remains in compliance with Florida’s auto insurance laws to avoid disputes and the resulting costly litigation. When disputes arise, we act quickly and decisively to protect your interests.
Defense of Insureds
A plaintiff may take legal action to hold a driver or the driver’s employer liable for damages that exceed the amount of insurance coverage, especially when a serious accident occurs. Trucking companies and other corporate entities are particularly vulnerable to lawsuits because of the common perception that the corporation has the financial resources to pay on a judgment.
When we defend drivers and corporations in auto accident lawsuits, our team conducts a thorough investigation of the claim and suits. From the moment the accident occurs, an experienced attorney personally manages the case, working to ensure the evidence is meticulously collected and developing strategies focused on mitigating damages.
Auto Accident Settlement, Arbitration, and Trial
Most auto accident claims are settled outside of court. Our lawyers negotiate equitable terms of settlement that comply with Florida statutes and protect our clients’ interests.
Before taking a claim to arbitration or trial, we calculate anticipated costs and time, in addition to considering the potential for setting an unfavorable precedent. We advise clients of all options.
The legal team at Taylor Day is well-respected by judges and lawyers alike. Throughout our 35 plus years of practice in the Jacksonville area, we have developed strong community connections along with an extensive knowledge of the judiciary. We take pride in the exceptional reputation we have established based upon our superior legal skills, professionalism, and commitment to our clients.
