Shapiro & Appleton

Are there alternatives to trial in a medical malpractice case?

Yes.  The parties to a medical malpractice case have the option of going to mediation or arbitration prior to the scheduled trial date.  Both options have their benefits; mediation is voluntary and a skilled mediator can often bring the parties to resolution.  Arbitration is more formal and similar to a court case in that the arbitrator makes a judgment or decision about the case, which decision is typically binding upon the parties.
