Settling Insured Claims in Mediation
1 PM GMT
How do insurance companies today really arrive at their internal evaluation of claims? How do they approach mediation of high frequency, low value claims? How does this change with low frequency, high value claims? What are the best prospects for settling before formal legal proceedings commence? How can attorneys become part of the process as panel counsel for insurance carriers? How can mediators contribute best to the settlement process and what is the most effective stage of dispute resolution for mediation?
Get realistic insights on these and other questions from an expert panel with decades of experience settling a wide variety of insured claims—from single catastrophic injuries to mass disasters such as hurricanes.
In this 75-minute CLE webinar, speakers will also discuss possibilities and pitfalls in the relationship between the insurance adjuster and plaintiff’s counsel, the practical implications of legal expense containment, and technology’s growing role in claims handling. Our panel will show how counsel for both claimants and carriers can achieve procedural and informed justice through the mediation process.
A must for lawyers and mediators alike!
