Medical Malpractice Law
Can Arbitration Be Used In Medical Malpractice Cases?
D.C. has established a system of arbitration where all cases are eligible. The arbitrator’s award may be entered in court and has the same force and effect as a final judgment. Subsequent to arbitration, every party is still afforded the right to a civil trial and evidence admitted at trial cannot be identified as being mentioned that it was used during the arbitration process.
