Personal Injury Arbitration Service.
Our Personal Injury Arbitration Service can aid the progression of low to medium value matters and offers an alternative solution to resolving disputes.
This impartial and independent service is an attractive to both parties as it saves both time and money.
Our Personal Injury Arbitration Service is available on all Stage 3, Small Claim and Fast Track matters, specifically:
• Small Claim Trials
• Fast Track Trials
• Disposal Hearings
• Applications and Procedural Disputes
• Costs Disputes
Many of our barristers are appointed as Recorders and Deputy District Judges and are therefore experienced in hearing cases of this nature. Papers can, of course, be emailed and all hearings will be conducted remotely via online platforms such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business (during COVID-19). Cases and hearings can also be dealt with on paper. This service does not preclude the parties from reverting to the court to determine the case.
