Learn how our insurance technology uses AI to detect and prevent Nuclear Verdicts®. Get claims risk predictions and claims litigation strategies from the experts.

Typically any verdict or jury settlement where the result for the plaintiff is $10 million or more is considered to be a Nuclear Verdict®. Also, if the verdict suppresses rational, reasonable facts in a case or the monetary result has a disproportionate non-economic award compared to the economic damages.

Absolutely! Many things have to go wrong for a Nuclear Verdict® to happen. But there are a handful of things that our research and data prove happen in every Nuclear Verdict®, without exception. This pattern has been incorporated into our patent-pending algorithm and is the subject of a follow up book to the best-selling “Nuclear Verdicts®: Defending Justice For All”, coming out in 2023.

Of course! And you do not have to write your representative in Congressman, or stop litigation funding, or curb attorney advertising, or end social inflation, to do it. It is rather simple. First, you have to be able to spot a potential Nuclear Verdict® in a live claim file. Then, you have to change behavior. Learn the pattern of Nuclear Verdicts® and then break the pattern. Schaefer City Technologies has software to help you do both, today!

Yes! NaVEL™ uses proprietary data points and machine learning to alert claims professionals when there is even just a possibility of a Nuclear Verdict®. NaVEL™ is a valuable tool for claims departments to alert management of the need to more closely review particular files for potential high exposure outcomes and to triage them as necessary, immediately.

The Nuclear Verdict® prediction is created using machine learning algorithms which have been trained with over 10 million data points from recent personal injury and employment cases that have gone to trial or settled pre-trial.

There are many, but the number one benefit is the early warning detection capability of NaVEL™ to identify key attributes, if present, within a live claim file and provide claims professionals with an indication that without further or different action, a specific claim may become a Nuclear Verdict® if it went to trial.
