Kaiser Permanente Arbitration
In attempts to limit claims against them, Kaiser Executives have implemented strict rules about how you can settle a malpractice claim. In fact, a provision of the insurance policy of Kaiser Permanente HMO members requires them to settle disputes through arbitration. This binding agreement prevents you from filing claims against Kaiser in court, and restricts your ability to contest serious injury claims.
These arbitrations involve technically complex procedures that you must adhere to when filing a malpractice claim. Over the years, people from throughout the Southern California, area have sought my advice concerning this binding arbitration. I understand the procedures and have legal strategies which can help you obtain the necessary compensation.
