Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney – What Is A Mediation?

In Georgia, a mediation is a way to attempt to resolve disputes between two parties.  Mediation is common in Georgia workers compensation claims and is sometimes required in other personal injury claims by Judges prior to taking a claim to trial.

In general, all parties show up where the claim is to be mediated.  There will be a neutral mediator, who will listen to a presentation by both sides.  Usually after the presentation by both parties they will split up into different rooms.  The goal of mediation is to settle or resolve disputes.  Often times is it an effort to settle a claim in its entirety.

Often times when a mediation is successful, both parties are a little unhappy and a little happy.  It is likely if the mediation is successful both parties gave up a little to resolve the claim.

Not all mediations are successful and if they can not be resolve they are non-binding and it is as if they never took place.

If you have a mediation it is important to know what to expect.  If you have a mediation for a personal injury or  workers compensation claim and need counsel or just have a question you should contact a Georgia Injury Attorney today at 912-508-4711 or 770-948-5454.
