ARBITRATION - Part I 

    TECHNICAL, MEDICO-LEGAL ELEMENTS

Messina R.

Primario Emerito di Medicina Legale , Azienda Sanitaria di Alessandria , Alessandria, Italia

After discussing situations in which divergent opinions concerning the same case may arise between the insured person’s physician and the insurance company physician, such that they are grounds for arbitration, the role and the difficulties of the insured person’s physician are examined, starting from the redaction of the expert opinion, these being the elements that constitute the first step the physician will undertake. Should the discrepancies in the physicians’ opinions remain unresolved, the next step is to evaluate the possible technical and strategic options for seeking arbitration after having explained to the client the risks and benefits of such action in relation to the potentially higher compensation and the cost of the procedure.
