Ferguson, Frost, Moore & Young represent clients throughout the State of Alabama in cases of commercial fraud involving, but not limited to, life insurance, annuities, and the sale of real estate. Common law and statutory fraud cases in Alabama place upon the claimant the burden of proving reasonable reliance on the alleged misrepresentation, whether it concerns the condition or value of a piece of property or the dividend earning potential of an annuity. We have obtained summary judgment in many cases while others have resolved favorably through mediation or independent negotiations with dispositive motions pending. Counsel at Ferguson, Frost, Moore & Young also defend claims arising out of “cafeteria plans” supported by insurance.
