Insurance Coverage / Bad Faith

4717 Grand | Suite 830 | Kansas City, MO 64112 | 816-931-6300
In almost every claim for civil damages in the United States, someone claims that an insurance policy provides coverage. To settle a personal injury or commercial case, it is almost always critical to determine whether insurance carriers should participate, and if so, to what extent. When dealing with complex insurance and coverage questions, the mediator must be adept at guiding multiple parties, lawyers and insurance carriers at the same time.  In this field, a good mediator must possess extensive litigation experience, familiarity with the culture of insurance companies and knowledge of applicable insurance laws.  Unique among mediators, Jay Daugherty has twenty years of experience as a trial judge giving him the ability to understand the culture of negotiations where complex insurance questions exist.  Insurance companies and their representatives want guidance from someone who regularly deals with coverage disputes.  Litigants on both sides want a mediator who is able to see these disputes from both the insurance company's perspective and the perspective of the litigants.  While many mediators are unprepared to tackle difficult and complex insurance coverage questions, as a former Circuit Judge, Jay Daugherty tried, negotiated and mediated numerous cases where insurance questions were the central focus.  Judge Daugherty tried or mediated coverage cases in areas such as vehicular collisions (common carrier and truck), machinery accidents, premises liability, intentional torts and many more.  The depth and breadth of his litigation experience in this area gives Jay Daugherty the knowledge and skill to handle even the most complex coverage or bad faith issue.  To schedule a mediation click on the icon below, follow the directions and set your mediation immediately while online.
