When you are injured in an accident or because of the negligence of someone else, seeking compensation is one option you have to minimize the expenses related to the accident. As you are going about the process, you might hear about mediation. This is often an effective tool for people who have a claim in Wisconsin.
There are some important points about mediation that people who have personal injury claims should be aware of as they embark upon their quest to get the compensation they need. The main point that might interest people is that mediation can offer a faster resolution than going through a trial. It is also less expensive.
We know that when you seek compensation, you need to get enough to cover your bills. The fact is that having to get experts to testify in court and having to go through all the court dates can be expensive. By settling your case through mediation, you can usually get the higher net settlement than what you would get if you went through a trial. Even if the settlement awarded at a trial is larger, the amount used to cover the costs of the trial usually cancels out that difference.
During a mediation proceeding, we stand by you to represent your best interests. As the mediator goes back and forth between you and the defendant, we will help you to review the information and offers to ensure you get a settlement that is suitable for your case. Being prepared for the mediation process and being open and honest as you go through it can help you to get your case resolved in a timely manner.
