Ensure that the Parties are Ready to Settle
If cases were mediated from the start, that would be ideal. However, many individuals tend to leave mediation until they are faced with a deadline or possibly about to go to trial. In general, the earlier the mediation occurs, the faster the complainant will have the ability to reevaluate a costly suit. If the plaintiff requires an early resolution for financial factors, then accelerated, mediations are required in that instance. The earlier the two opposing parties or attorneys make the preparations; the earlier mediation can happen.
Court-mandated personal injury mediations are a chance to exchange vital info, update discovery documents, and to open the way for future negotiations if required.
In some instances, speaking candidly to the opposing counsel can help you learn if their side is ready to settle the case. The mediator can have a personal talk with both parties to see if they are ready to deal with the matter.
