Choose the Right Mediator
A mediator should be chosen according to their certifications, experience, and mediation approaches. Personal injury mediation styles often vary, and some mediators are facilitators and avoid giving their opinions. On the contrary, some mediators are evaluators who express their viewpoints and opinions based on the merits of the case. In general, hiring an arbitrator who combines the two styles is typically the best. Furthermore, litigators prefer to use a mediator that is approved by the other side. Opposing parties are most likely to accept mediation if they rely on the mediator. Any prior professional or personal relationships with the mediator should be revealed.
