Ruberry, Stalmack & Garvey, LLC has extensive experience in all aspects of property losses, from third party property damage claims, to first party property insurance claims under a broad array of policies, including both all-risk and multi-peril commercial property policies as well as inland marine policies including builder's risk, installation and equipment floaters, motor truck cargo and transportation floaters.                       

We have served clients in every type of major catastrophic loss, including severe hurricanes, 9-11 World Trade Center coverage matters, mass environmental losses, as well as claims and litigation across the United States involving mold, lead paint, asbestos and Chinese manufactured drywall.     

Our attorneys are familiar with analyzing coverage as to whether there has been a loss or damage to covered property during the initial investigation of a claim, we also assess the exposure and evaluate the extent of the loss to covered property by assisting with loss valuation through the retention of experts, accountants and investigators, as well as through the solicitation of the sworn statements, examinations under oath and proofs of loss.

We have successfully litigated property damage and property insurance coverage actions in jurisdictions throughout the United States, including actions seeking to void coverage or to rescind a policy based upon fraud, false swearing or material misrepresentations in the application for insurance.
