Arbitration and Mediation for Personal Injuries Cases

Arbitration and mediation are affordable and faster alternatives to a trial. Arbitration and mediation allow two parties in a personal injury case to present their evidence without a jury.

During arbitration hearings we act as the arbitrator. At mediation, we act as the mediator. We meet each party and hear the evidence during arbitration or mediation. You’ll get your case heard faster. And you’ll get an experienced decision.

While arbitration and mediation differ from one another, they are both alternatives to litigation. And unlike court cases, evidence introduced during mediation is typically confidential, and in the case of arbitration you can make confidentiality a condition of the proceeding.

Arbitration and mediation are types of alternative dispute resolution designed to help you avoid going to court. If you are involved in a dispute and prefer not to go to court, call Ladenburg McKasy Durkin Inc. P.S. for a free consultation to review the facts with one of our attorneys. We look forward to meeting with you. (253) 272-5226

What are the Benefits of Binding Arbitration?

One of the strong advantages of binding arbitration as opposed to filing a lawsuit in a court of law is that arbitration and mediation is more flexible than litigation.

Some of the benefits of binding arbitration include:

  • Less costly than traditional litigation
  • Faster resolution than a lawsuit
  • Greater privacy than litigation
  • Hearings can be scheduled around needs of those involved
  • Hostility avoidance

Most arbitration is considered to be binding; that is, the parties who agree to arbitration are bound to the agreement, and are also bound to satisfy any award that is determined by the arbitrator. And there is usually little to no option for appeal, expecting the parties who arbitrate to assume the risks of the process.
