Chris Gerold Quoted in NJLJ Article on Federal Court’s Decision to Speed Up Hurricane Sandy Cases

Wolff & Samson associate Christopher Gerold, a member of the firm’s Disaster Recovery Claims Group and author for the Flood Insurance Attorneys blog, was quoted in a New Jersey Law Journal article titled “Fed. Courts Move to Speed Up Hurricane Sandy Litigaton.”  The article, which was published on August 27, 2014, discusses how the federal judiciary in New Jersey recently moved to speed up cases that are being sent for alternative dispute resolution.  When asked if most of the lawsuits are being filed because carriers are refusing to make legitimate offers settlement offers for fear of being audited if they overpay, Chris states, “If they don’t see damage, they’re not paying. There are no repercussions for underpaying.”
