Personal Injury Mediation


Mediation is used to resolve disputes related to accidents causing bodily injury to one or more persons. While most injured parties are looking for a financial resolution, often, if government entities are involved, action can be taken, whether in the form of a new law or safety initiative, which can help prevent future similar occurrences. This result is not possible using traditional litigation.

Mediation of personal injury cases can be beneficial to both parties because issues can be resolved more quickly , control remains in the hands of those most intimately affected, and costs can be kept under control. Mediation is successful when all sides agree on a mutually fair outcome.
