What Is Mediation?

Posted by Brian Price & filed under Auto Accidents, Serious Injury.


Many times, once a personal injury claim is in litigation, the defense counsel and the 13 highly experienced trial lawyers here at DLP will decide to enter into what is called, Mediation.  Mediation is when both sides decide to submit the pending claim to a neutral Mediator who will work with both sides to try and resolve the claim.  The Mediator is usually a retired Judge or an Attorney that both sides can agree upon.  Both sides usually put their best foot forward and then the Mediator explores the pros and cons of each sides’ case.  The two sides go back and forth with offers and demands.  The process can take an afternoon or many days.  Both sides realize the unpredictability of a Jury Trial and the process many times leads to a timely conclusion.  Remember: Injury? Call DLP! (570) C-A-L-L-D-L-P / (570) 2-2-5-5-3-5-7 bprice@dlplaw.com
