At Field Law, John's insurance practice includes dealing with a wide variety of insurance claims including: casualty, motor vehicle, accident benefits, property loss, personal injury, professional liability, errors and omissions, employment, fraud, condominium disputes, coverage, bad faith claims, and sureties. John has acted in test cases for insurers looking to establish case law within the Provincial Court of Alberta and for insurers looking for an economical means of resolving matters before the Courts or through settlement.
