North Carolina House Approves Binding Arbitration in Med/Mal Cases | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

The North Carolina House of Representatives bill allows parties who both agree to binding arbitration to pursue it. In binding arbitration, each side presents his case to a neutral judge who determines what a fair value of the case is. This bill aims to “fast-track” smaller cases only, as it limits the amount of damages to $1 million.
