Can I use alternate dispute resolution to resolve my personal injury case in Houston?

You may be able to use alternative dispute resolution to resolve your personal injury case. There are two types of alternative dispute resolution – arbitration and mediation. In many cases, they can be better options than going to a trial.

Arbitration is an alternative dispute resolution to a trial. When two parties with a dispute cannot come close to an agreed resolution, arbitration may be better than a trial. In arbitration, the arbitrator acts like a judge and jury, and hears testimony, reviews evidence, and makes a decision. The arbitration can either be binding or non-binding, which means the parties may have to abide by it or not. Arbitration is quicker and cheaper than a trial, and the decision can be kept confidential. However, there is no chance to appeal.

In mediation, the two parties work together with a mediator to reach a compromise on their case. They are free to either reach an agreement or not. Mediation is also cheaper and quicker than a trial, and it can also be confidential. Mediation gives the two parties the control to reach a compromise or not. It can also preserve the relationship after the case is over.

If you are in a personal injury dispute with another person or entity, you should speak with a personal injury attorney rather than handling the case on your own.
