Personal Injury Mediation
Resolving personal injury cases through litigation is both time-consuming and costly. Most of these cases do get settled but only after a significant cost in time, money, and emotional strain. Even a simple two-party case may stall out over revealing evidence or valuation issues. Mediation, however, presents a quicker and less expensive alternative to litigation.

Personal injury litigation ranges from a basic slip and fall dispute to the most complicated product liability claim. Mediation services are available to disputing parties concerning injuries caused by:
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Dog bites
- Accidents at work
- Accidents in the home
- Holiday accidents
- Product defect accidents
- Head and Brain Trauma
- Catastrophic Accidents
When a person is injured because of someone else’s negligence, filing a lawsuit is often thought the best option. The U.S. legal system in the last few years has slowly been moving away from the adversarial court system as the main method of settling personal injury claims. Instead, a different type of resolution called mediation is used.
Mediation can be court-ordered but is entirely voluntary in most cases. It is used only if both sides request it. A settlement of the mediated dispute is reached only if both parties agree to it.
The mediation process is informal. Each side is given the chance to speak without being weighed down by legal procedures. In addition, neither party has to worry about how saying something wrong might make them “lose” the dispute. Mediation costs are generally divided equally between the two parties.
Benefits of mediation in personal injury cases
If a stalemate has been reached when negotiating with an insurance claims adjuster, mediation might break the deadlock. There are several potential advantages of mediation, which include:
- adding a personal presence on your claim since you’ll be sitting in the same room with the adjuster
- requiring no documents for mediation which you have not already acquired from the claims process
- getting a neutral third party (the mediator) to sit with you to help break the deadlock
- getting a faster and less-costly alternative to hiring an attorney and going to court
