In personal injury disputes, the attorney/mediators of Mediated Resolutions, serve as a neutral third party to help work through areas of disagreement.
Mediation In Personal Injury Cases
In personal injury mediation, there are usually five parties present:
- The plaintiff who filed the claim
- The plaintiff’s attorney
- An insurance company claims adjuster
- The insurance company’s defense attorney
- The mediator
The insurance adjuster’s presence is important, because he or she decides whether a tendered offer is acceptable.
How It Works, Simplified
First everyone meets together, so the two sides can state their cases and explain their reasoning. Then the two sides go to separate rooms. The mediator starts with the plaintiff, obtaining a number that leaves room for negotiation. Then the mediator visits the defendant and obtains a second number. This back-and-forth continues until a number is arrived at that both sides are amenable to.
