Are there alternatives to going to court in a Maryland truck accident case?
If you’re involved in a truck accident in Maryland, there are several options other than going to court. First, you can settle with the insurance company if you’re able to reach a mutual agreement. If you’re not able to reach an agreement, you could submit the case to a mediator. A mediator is a person who would listen to both sides of the case and try to facilitate an agreement between the parties. The last option that you might use would be an arbitrator. That’s similar to a mediator, but the arbitrator could be binding. An arbitrator would be a person that you submit the claim to. They would take testimony, and hear the evidence, and review the documents. Then they would make a decision regarding the case and make an award to the injured party.
