In the past five years no-fault arbitration practice has significantly changed. As the industry battled fraud at every level, it became far more difficult to obtain a successful arbitration decision. As a result, court suits were commenced in increasing numbers which overwhelmed our judicial system. Judges soon became irritated by the high volume of litigated no-fault claims, and currently frown upon the filing of no-fault lawsuits. Clearly, the pendulum has now swung the other way. Success rates in arbitration matters have finally soared to a point where an ever-increasing number of arbitration claims are currently being filed (once again!). Insurance companies appreciate the firm's loyalty to the arbitration system which expedites early settlements.
Here at Rubin & Licatesi, P.C. we offer you the best of both worlds. In situations where arbitration would be the more prudent and expedient way to satisfy the claim, we offer over 20 years of successful experience. We also now have an experienced staff that has been extremely successful in Civil Litigation of outstanding No-Fault claims. Their expertise and protocol of operation allows for much quicker turn around time of settlement along with a much higher bar of standard than that of other firms.
