Litigation or Mediation For Insurance Claims?

When an insurance company wrongfully denies a claim, policyholders should consider all options, including alternative dispute resolution.  As an insurance recovery law firm with decades of experience helping corporate policyholders recover on insurance claims, we know that litigation is not always the best option. 

In today’s video, Clarissa Cerda continues her contribution to the Miller Friel Insurance Coverage Blog by discussing her experience, as a policyholder client, with this very question of when it is appropriate to litigate, and when it is appropriate to mediate or arbitrate.  If you have missed any of Clarissa’s previous videos, please take a look at some of her prior posts, including:

Not every client has the willingness to litigate.   Litigation brings a level of risk and exposure that many companies prefer to avoid.  We offer clients viable alternatives to litigation derived from our experience practicing exclusively in this one area of specialty for years.  We understand that all insurance situations are different.  Some situations are best resolved through mediation.  Others may require arbitration or litigation.  In the end, we offer our clients viable choices and plans to succeed, so they can decide on what approach works best for them. 

At Miller Friel we have a team of highly accomplished litigators who routinely take insurance cases to trial.  We also have decades of experience dealing with the nuances of mediation and arbitration.  But, most importantly, we have the wisdom to know when to use any given approach to resolution.  

Again we thank Clarissa for sharing her client centered exertise on insurance.  If you have any questions after watching the video please don’t hesitate to reach out
