People in car accidents are often told to get legal help to make sure their rights are enforced. A study confirms two other key reasons for getting legal help if you are in an auto accident — you will likely receive more money, and you have a better chance of recovering money.

The study was conducted by the respected Rand Institute. It found that auto accident victims who hire attorneys receive about 25% more money than auto accident victims who do not hire attorneys — even after deducting all costs.

The study also found that using a lawyer increases an auto accident victim’s chances of recovering money to almost 95%.

Settlement Program Overview The Supreme Court’s Settlement Program is an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) program that was started in 1997. Since its inception, 53% of the cases assigned to the program have settled. The program is administered under the provisions of Nevada Rule of Appellate Procedure 16 ( NRAP 16 ). Mediation The ADR method of the program is MEDIATION. Mediation is a process in which an impartial third party, a Settlement Judge, assists the parties in reaching a mutually acceptable solution to their dispute. The settlement judge doesn’t decide the outcome of the case, but rather assists the parties in communicating their positions and interests in order to promote understanding, reconciliation, and a mutually acceptable solution to the dispute. In doing so, the settlement judge may ask questions, help define issues, and assist in the generation and evaluation of settlement proposals. Mediation provides the parties with an opportunity to resolve their case themselves. Settlement Judges Settlement Judges (biographies) are appointed by the Supreme Court based on an evaluation of the applicant’s education, training and experience. Settlement judges are required to have a high degree of training and experience in mediation skills. Most settlement judges also have significant legal experience as practicing attorneys, including specialized experience in the unique issues that arise in appellate work. All settlement judges’ professional biographies are available on this web site.
