Christie Administration Announces Mediation Program for Sandy-Related Insurance Claims


Christie Administration Announces Mediation Program for Sandy-Related Insurance Claims

by John M. Scagnelli on March 4, 2013

The Christie Administration recently announced a new mediation program aimed to expedite the resolution of insurance disputes related to Superstorm Sandy. As we have discussed on this Business Law Blog, mediation is often a faster and more cost-effective alternative to litigation.

Under the new program, property owners can submit homeowner's, automobile, and commercial property claims to a mediator who will review the case and assist in settlement discussions. In order to be eligible for mediation, the claims must be greater than $1,000 and not include a reasonable suspicion of fraud. The policies must have also been in force at the time Sandy made landfall.
