A: It certainly could make the case go faster if the parties are able to reach an agreement in arbitration, otherwise it may delay the case. Your attorney would be in the best position to answer whether or not an arbitration would be beneficial to your case, so I suggest you as him or her. If you do not have an attorney, you absolutely should hire one immediately. Many of us offer free consultations, and will represent you on a contingent basis, so it will not cost you anything out of pocket to obtain the representation of an experienced professional who handles these cases for a living, and will add a substantial amount of value to your case.
