Our auto-specific mediation processes take place in a comfortable and conversation-welcoming setting. We bring both parties together for a discussion overseen by an unbiased, experienced professional litigator with years of experience and expertise in trial work on both sides of the table – for insurance companies and plaintiffs alike – in personal injury, negligence, professional malpractice, and insurance cases. Both parties work together to talk and work through the dispute to reach an outcome that is mutually decided upon. While mediation is not binding and settlements cannot be forced, the time and money that can be saved by not going through litigation can benefit both parties. A mediator has no power to impose a solution, instead, the mediator facilitates the parties’ communication and points them to issue resolution.
Auto arbitration offers greater control over who hears and decides the outcome of an automobile-related dispute rather than relying on a randomly chosen judge or jury that comes with litigation. Arbitration is typically conducted by a panel of arbitrators who act similar to a judge. The panel hears evidence and uses that information to make decisions. The panel will provide written opinions on the matter that are either binding or nonbinding. Arbitration is typically binding and replaces a trial to resolve your auto insurance dispute, in a comfortable and results-driven setting.
