What do you mean by "insurance denials"? Coverage disputes where the ins co denies coverage? Or like uninsured motorist claims?

I think they mean like denied claims for property damage, like I guess if certain damages under Homeowners policy are excluded, they argue that they shouldn't be excluded.

I think this is called third party claims but I’m not really sure why. I know an older attorney who is a commercial lit partner in biglaw who got his start doing this. Apparently it can be quite lucrative as the cases are based on contract and if you have a strong case you can take it contingency for more than the 33 percent allowed by law.

Why terrible? My buddy works PI and loves it. Very much a David vs Goliath mentality.

What do you mean by insurance denials. I represent physicians in insurance reimbursement denials, and it is pretty lucrative and complex.

Unfair settlement practice claims? In my state you can get triple damages and attys fees.

I do some of this on the plaintiff side handling claims under homeowner, flood, and commercial policies. It is not a bad field. Usually you get an insurer that either underpays or raises some bogus exclusion. You work with contractors and public adjusters to evaluate damages and battle with the insurer over payment. You often have a bad faith element to these cases, which may allow you to recover attorney's fees, penalties, and treble damages. I find the work to be more interesting than stuff like auto litigation because you are often litigating over policy exclusions, which can be interesting if you're in that sort of thing.
