Areas of Expertise - Insurance Coverage
Insurance law involves disputes arising from insurance claims and policies. The vast majority of cases are between policyholders and their insurance carriers, however, the subject of the claim can vary enormously. A strong neutral for insurance cases should have both familiarity with insurance practices and sharp ability for calculating remedies. In many cases, fault is not necessarily in dispute, but the calculation of damages can yield a wide range of values, and guiding the parties to settlement on a single figure is often the bulk of a mediator's assignment. In an arbitration, the neutral must be very familiar with the law surrounding various forms of damages to make an appropriate decision.
Although these principles underlie many ADR proceedings, they are particularly important when handling insurance cases, especially since the law regarding suits against insurance carriers is fundamentally different than the law on suits between individuals or non-insurance entities.
