What is arbitration?


You may be wondering, “How does arbitration work with respect to medical malpractice claims?” More often than not, arbitration is required in medical malpractice case. When a doctor renders service, they require the patient to sign a form consenting to arbitration. The courts prefer that cases go to arbitration because it lessens the docket load, and judges have fewer cases to decide. The arbitration itself works a little bit like a trial, but there are three arbitrators who look at the evidence and who can converse to come up with an award for the injured claimant. Once that award is determined, then it’s the circuit court that actually enforces that award.
