The mediation tool– a free, upfront PIP Pilot Mediation Program for any party with a scheduled in-person PIP hearing in the NJ arbitration program - enables parties to embrace the cost savings alternative of settling their cases. The Mediation Program allows parties to meet via video conference with a trained and experienced DRP/Mediator to discuss the specific issues preventing resolution of their case. The mediation will take place early in the arbitration process and can allow all parties to avoid the expense of preparing comprehensive arbitration submissions, or the time necessary to prepare for the arbitration hearing.
