The Rotatori Law Firm may have to conduct a title search when one of our clients has been injured due to the negligence of another. Often, in the field of personal injury, a defendant may negligently cause damages that exceed available insurance proceeds. This can happen in a slip and fall injury or in an automobile accident case. There are some civil personal injury cases where there may be no insurance proceeds available to pay a damage claim caused by the negligence of another. A negligent homeowner who has not paid homeowners insurance resulting in a cancelled homeowner's insurance policy, a dog bite homeowner's policy that excludes coverage for all dogs or specific dogs, a homeowner's policy that excludes coverage for backyard trampoline injuries or a bar that fails to carry dram shop insurance coverage are some examples of this. When this happens, a title search may have to be done to determine if the defendant has sufficient assets to satisfy a personal injury judgment.
