Christie Administration Announces Insurance Mediation Program to Expedite Sandy-Related Claims

Trenton, NJ - Continuing the Administration's commitment to assist New Jersey residents in swiftly resolving their Sandy-related insurance claims, Governor Chris Christie and New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI) Commissioner Ken Kobylowski announced the release of a Request for a Qualification (RFQ) to establish a new mediation process that gives consumers the option to settle disputed cases without resorting to costly and time consuming lawsuits.

"This process is needed to help alleviate the hardship being experienced by residents whose property was damaged or destroyed by Sandy," said Governor Christie. "As of February 15, the percentage of claims closed is now 87% overall and 91% for homeowners. This mediation program is an opportunity to expediently resolve outstanding claims so that residents can continue to rebuild their lives."

The new program will allow property owners to submit homeowner's, automobile and commercial property claims to a mediator who will review the case and assist in settlement discussions. Disputed non-flood Sandy-related claims greater than $1,000 that do not include a reasonable suspicion of fraud and are based on policies in force at the time Sandy made landfall will be eligible for mediation. Insurance carriers will pay for the cost of the mediator.
