If you can prove your truck accident happened because of a truck driver’s failure to exercise reasonable care, your Fulton personal injury attorney knows you have a strong personal injury case.
Litigation or Alternative Dispute Resolution
Winning your case so you get the compensation you deserve is top priority for Fulton personal injury attorneys.
To save court costs and litigation fees, a Fulton personal injury attorney may recommend Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) when working with the:
- · driver;
- · trucking company; and/or
- · other responsible party.
An ADR takes place outside the courtroom.
An ADR may involve:
- · negotiation;
- · mediation; and
- · arbitration.
The process is often faster than filing a lawsuit in court, which may be plagued with an excessive number of cases and time delays. There are a number of benefits to ADR but it is important to have a personal injury attorney examine your particular case.
