"Meyerkord and Meyerkord, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation"
A Bronx judge has created a program that is becoming more popular and is even spreading into other parts of New York. The program is designed to speed-up the process of medical malpractice cases using alternatives to the traditional court process that can take an emotional and monetary toll on all parties. The program is called "judge-directed negotiations" which is managed by a judge with expertise in the particular area at issue in the case. The judge oversees the entire process and from the beginning has an "eye toward settlement". The new process is appealing to many because it generally takes less time to reach a settlement, which means that settlements are reached much more quickly than it usually is than in the traditional court process. The judge in charge of the case directs the negotiations but does not impose a settlement. If the plaintiff is unhappy with the results, he can seek out a traditional medical malpractice lawsuit.
