Resolving insurance disputes without the costly trial
WHAT IS FIRST-PARTY MEDIATION?
First-party mediation usually deals with residential property disputes. The “first-party” is the owner of the property that has been damaged. These disputes can also include home owners’ associations (HOAs). In many states, first-party court cases are often sent to mediation before the trial, so going to mediation first can save all sides time and money. Mediation, as a voluntary process, also gives all parties more control of the process than going through the courts
