Mediation can be a highly beneficial, guiding & supporting part of the dispute resolution process in personal injury cases.
Mediation is an informal alternative to a court hearing, in which a third party assists in attempting to negotiate a mutually beneficial outcome for the parties involved.
So how can mediation help you?
Successful mediation can help avoid legal costs. Going to court can be expensive, however this can be largely decreased by taking advantage of mediation rather than through litigation.
Court procedures can be stressful, alternative mediation can help reduce stress. Through a more informal environment, mediation can help avoid these stressful situations and benefit the parties involved.
Unlike legal proceedings which exist in the public forum, the mediation process is completely confidential.
The process of mediation, complete with agreeance from both parties, generates higher levels ofsatisfaction.
Mediation as an alternative to legal proceedings can help preserve the relationship between the parties involved. One of the unfortunate side-effects of litigation is the prevalence of relationship breakdowns due to the stressful situation, some of this risk can be avoided due to the cooperative nature of mediation.
