Alternatives to Court Settlements
As an alternative to lengthy, costly, and overwhelming settlements derived by the courts, Chahal Priddle LLP can also guide you through alternative settlement approaches for your personal injury case, such as direct party negotiations, mediation, and arbitration. These alternative approaches can also help to remove some of the inherent risks of going to court to arrive at a settlement.
At the start of the mediation, arbitration, or negotiation process, we will explain the details of your claim, what your settlement amount should be, and how we arrived at that figure.
Although mediation and arbitration cases share some attributes, arbitration cases are more formal and involve an arbitrator chosen by both sides to make legally binding decisions (in instances of binding arbitration proceedings). During your consultation with Chahal Priddle LLP, we may recommend an alternative to litigation and explain which type of alternative approach may work best in your particular case.
Passion – Your rights and those of the people you care about must be protected against the third party insurer (in British Columbia, the insurer is usually ICBC).
Integrity – We’re straightforward about the process and we’ll see you through it. You are the client. We act on your behalf – it’s extremely important that we honour your trust by being honest and accountable.
Results – We have an established track record of getting results. Other law firms often refer complex cases to us because of our respected experience, knowledge, and skillful negotiation tactics.
*You can make an appointment to visit one of our offices, or one of our lawyers can visit you at home, at a relative’s home or in the hospital. The sooner you get help, the less you will worry.
Of note, in the case of a catastrophic injury, we will fly to where the injured person is hospitalized to meet with them and assist with the insurance process right away – usually within a day of the injury. This saves the injured person and their family from dealing with the insurance company and avoids the risk of being taken advantage of when they are in a compromised position. We also help establish rehabilitation and disability benefits pursuant to their insurance policy as well, so there is no gap in the injured person’s care and recovery.
We keep a blog of legal information and anecdotes for various situations. Stay up to date.
