Alternative Dispute Resolution May Benefit a Truck Accident Claim, Says Fulton Personal Injury Attorney

When dealing with a commercial truck accident claim, a Fulton personal injury attorney may recommend an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) like arbitration, instead of taking your claim to trial.

Some of the reasons ADR may be better suited for a commercial truck accident claim are:

 

  • ·        speed – an average arbitrated case finishes in approximately 15 months and a case going through the court system can last anywhere from 18 months to three years;
  • ·        cost - arbitration is not as complex as maneuvering through the court system, and resolutions are reached much faster. Because of this, costs are lower for litigants; and flexibility – many arbitrations are held when the litigants are available, such as in the evenings and weekends. This allows those involved to maintain their current schedules without having to juggle their normal daily activities.
