Glossary of Legal Terms

We know that legal terms can be confusing. As a result, we created the following glossary to help you understand some of the more common terms and concepts we use with clients, specifically regarding personal injury cases. You will likely notice some of these terms around the site and hopefully, with this glossary's help, you won't be left scratching your head.

Arbitration - A method of dispute resolution involving one or more neutral third parties. An arbitrator is appointed by the court as a temporary judge and hears the evidence like a jury would through witnesses and/or documents. The arbitrator makes rulings of law and fact and, after hearing the evidence, issues are ruling as to liability (fault), comparative fault and the nature and amount of damages, if any. This decision is written into the form of an order. The parties have 30 days from the date of the order to reject the ruling. If they do not reject the ruling it becomes a final judgement, is entered into the court record, and the case is over with that order controlling the rights and responsbilities of the parties.
