Employers, construction companies, health insurance agencies, auto dealers, money lenders, and other organizations often use arbitration agreements in their contracts to keep cases out of the courtroom. Here are some of the top reasons many corporations utilize arbitration to settle disputes:
Court cases are usually open to the public. If you want to keep your dispute confidential while reaching a decision, arbitration may be an excellent choice.
Arbitration almost always leads to a quick decision, which is why many businesses prefer it over litigation. With arbitration, you’ll often have an answer in a matter of days, rather than weeks or months.
Arbitration is faster and less formal than trial proceedings. That usually means the cost in attorney fees and other legal charges are less than taking your case to court.
Decisions made by an arbitrator are usually final with no chance of appeal which could add cost and time. This allows both parties to move forward with an answer they can live with, without taking the case to court.
Sometimes, two parties who reside in other states or countries use arbitration because their case cannot be tried within local jurisdictions.
Usually, both parties agree on the arbitrator they’ve selected, which helps ensure a fair outcome.
Arbitration isn’t right for every situation. Here are some of the circumstances where arbitration benefits civil cases:
