Insurance Defense Notable Cases

Securing Positive Results for Our Clients

Levy Pruett Cullen has a track record of successfully defending individuals, businesses, insurers, and government agencies. We consistently apply our expertise from the cases's inception through mediation, arbitration, trial, or appeal. We communicate with our clients regularly, updating them with our assessment of the advantages, risks, and projected costs of litigation. Our attorneys negotiate settlements, win summary judgments, and prevail in front of juries. We are seasoned trial lawyers with a winning record in court, a passion for what we do, and a willingness to represent our clients at affordable rates.

American Southern Insurance Company has retained Susan Levy to represent our Insureds for close to 20 years. Their in-depth knowledge of the facts of each case as well as the applicable law has consistently impressed me. They are always prepared and fight hard for our Insureds on motions, at mediation, and at trial. It is without hesitation that I recommend this team.

Automobile & Trucking Liability

Whether you are an individual, a business, an insurer, or a government entity, Levy Pruett Cullen has achieved considerable success in cases arising from automobile and commercial trucking accidents. We work with insurers and self-insureds to defend against claims of negligence in personal injury and wrongful death cases. Our firm has successfully defended owners and operators of tractor-trailers, school buses, tour buses, fire engines, dump trucks, ambulances, sanitation trucks, and other commercial vehicles.

We begin each case with a thorough review of the accident. We have personally conducted on-scene investigations of crashes involving large commercial vehicles. We have an established network of accident reconstructionists, engineers, and medical experts to assist in the investigation, evaluation, and defense of these claims. We then formulate our defense strategy by combining the specific facts of each crash and analysis of witness interviews with our knowledge of state law and, if applicable, relevant federal motor carrier safety regulations.


Disputes are not uncommon in the construction industry. Levy Pruett Cullen represents owners, design professionals, contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, and others in the construction industry in a wide variety of claims arising out of residential, commercial, and public works projects. We have the experience and expertise to assist our clients in any construction dispute resolution forum, including litigation, arbitration, mediation, and negotiation. In every case, we maximize recovery, minimize loss, and secure prompt and favorable resolution for our clients. We also work with a network of investigators, engineers, and construction experts to provide our clients with aggressive yet cost-effective dispute resolution.

Our lawyers have vast expertise in a wide variety of construction-related disputes, including breach of contract, design or construction defects, differing site conditions, delays, and claims arising out of property damage, work site injuries, or other catastrophes.

Governmental Liability & Transportation

Levy Pruett Cullen’s attorneys have defended the Georgia Department of Transportation in personal injury and wrongful death cases for almost two decades. We have defended the State of Georgia against allegations of negligence including road design, construction, maintenance, signalization, work zone traffic control, guardrail installation, and numerous other transportation issues.

Through our extensive representation of Georgia DOT and several other large public and private entities, Levy Pruett Cullen is very familiar with the principles of accident reconstruction, the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, and American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) publications.

Food-borne Illness

manufacturers, food suppliers, and other food service businesses against claims of food contamination or food-borne illness. We have access to food and medical experts across the country to assist in investigating food-related claims, assessing causation and damages, and preparing the case for trial.

We also know these claims have the potential to negatively impact our clients’ reputations, so we are trained in media relations and we strive to minimize or neutralize any negative publicity while aggressively defending our clients. 

Premises Liability

Businesses and property owners are often faced with claims of defective conditions on their property or the alleged misconduct of their employees. We have more than 30 years of experience in defending premises liability cases—representing hotels, hospitals, restaurants, construction companies, nightclubs, landlords, tenants, commercial businesses, and other property owners against a variety of claims including negligent security; slip, trip and falls; assault and battery; food-borne illness; and food contamination.
