WHAT IS MEDIATION?

Mediation is a process that helps parties resolve issues without having to go to trial. It is intended to give all parties a chance to come to the table and negotiate throughout the process with a Mediator, neutral party, going from room to room attempting to figure out what would both sides ultimate agree upon. Once all parties agree to the same thing, the matter is settled. At mediation, both parties and their attorneys will be heard, but the mediator is not a judge. The mediator’s sole goal is to help the parties resolve the issues in the case. It is important to understand your priorities so you can understand what you are willing to give up in order to reach a compromise. In the context of personal injury, there may be a certain settlement value that you are unwilling to concede. In that case, you are not obligated to settle. The mediation will continue until one of the parties request the same to end. If cases do not settle at mediation, the next step is usually to prepare for trial. Depending on how far you’ve gotten in the mediation, settlement talks can continue for the days and weeks after a mediation to ultimately help resolve the case. Mediators charge an hourly fee that varies from mediator to mediator. Mediators come from a variety of backgrounds and experience, which is why it is important to have a reliable attorney on your side so that the attorney can help pick a mediator that is best suited for you and your case, as well as your budget.
