In a civil suit against a local city government, is it a good, effective strategy to enjoin their Liability Insurance Carrier, who’s adjuster, as expected, rejected the claim for damages submitted to the city’s risk management department?

Should the insurance carrier be included and listed as a co-defendant in the pleading for damages?

Or, should the suit/pleading be amended to direct the complaint solely against the city’s Liability insurance carrier and handled similarly like a personal injury case?

You need a lawyer familiar with the law in your jurisdiction (location). Any answer without knowing where you are is just guessing.

But having said that, most governmental entities in the U.S. have immunity from civil suit except in very special circumstances. Are you already certain that you can bring your cause of action?
