Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative dispute resolution is any type of mediation between two parties to reach a mutual agreement. In the case of an insurance dispute, the need for dispute resolution arises if the insured and the insurer do not agree on the money that should be paid out after a claim. The insured is not without options; he or she can file to have the case heard by a judge. The judge will engage in fact finding, mediation and facilitating a discussion between the two parties. At the end of the process, the insured and insurer will have reached an agreement about the sum that the insured is owed. If the parties do not agree, the judge will render a settlement.
