Our Approach to Personal Injury Mediation

  • Confidentiality Agreement

    Before formal mediation discussions occur, all participants — including the plaintiffs’ team, defense team, and the mediator - sign a confidentiality agreement. That ensures that statements made during the mediation cannot later be used against either party if the case proceeds to trial.

  • Pre-Mediation Conferences, Mediation Briefs, and Opening Statements

    Representation for both the plaintiff and defense will outline case details as they see them, along with their settlement positions. That educates the mediator on areas of disagreement and areas of opportunity.

  • Private Discussions

    Next, Jeff meets with each side to probe issues further, understand core interests, and explore scenarios for settlement. As the mediator, Jeff facilitates communication, aiming to identify common ground.

  • Settlement Terms

    Using the facts of the case, and his knowledge and experience of potential outcomes, Jeff will discuss reasonable solutions with the parties. Litigants reach an agreement in the vast majority of mediations, resolving the conflict with efficiency and mutually acceptable terms.

Why Choose Mediation for a Personal Injury Claim?

Going to trial is time consuming. It can take several months, even years, to work through the court system. That’s why mediation is so appealing to both sides. Mediation resolves accident claims faster and with less expense.

Plus, each party maintains greater control over the process and the outcome. Mediation provides flexibility, with room for creative, sometimes structured, solutions that don’t always fit the courtroom mold.

If the plaintiff is entitled to compensation, they receive it sooner, when it’s most needed. And everyone receives closure to move on to the next chapter.
