Congratulations to Saunders, Walsh & Beard’s client, The Dinosaur Company (a division of Billings Productions), for obtaining full insurance benefits for the loss of 21 of its dinosaur replicas in North Carolina due to Hurricane Florence. The insurer for the Dinosaur Company initially filed the claim for the loss, and SWB’s own “dinosaur” lawyers, Alex Beard and Mark Johnson, stepped in to make sure Billings received all the insurance benefits it was entitled to under its insurance policy. Mr. Beard & Mr. Johnson convinced the insurance company its initial decision to pay only a portion of the loss was incorrect and, as a result, the Dinosaur Company received over a half a million dollars in additional policy benefits–all without having to file a lawsuit.

At SWB, we help our clients (large and small) get the insurance coverage they paid for when they purchased their insurance policy. Two of our partners–Alex Beard and Mark Johnson–each have decades of experience dealing with insurance companies and analyzing insurance policies. In fact, both Mr. Beard and Mr. Johnson both represented insurance companies exclusively for several years, and they now leverage that valuable experience in representing our policyholder clients and assisting them with their insurance-related issues.
