Buffalo, NY asked in Arbitration / Mediation Law for New York

Q: Hello. I completed an arbitration request form with Greenfield Rehab/Nursing home and they assigned Chubb Insurance Co.

They called me and asked if I had an attorney.

Do I need an attorney? What would the charge be for this type of assistance?

A: The description does not mention what the arbitration is in reference to, whether it involves an injury claim, a medical bill, or other matter. Based on the nature of the matter, you could reach out to the appropriate attorneys. Depending on the type of case and the arbitration company, attorneys fees are SOMETIMES set by statute (in certain American Arbitration Association cases for example). If you contacted attorneys to discuss in more detail, that might help answer your questions. Good luck
