My Medical Malpractice Case Is Going to Mediation-What Can I Expect?

Posted by Frank Spector | Feb 05, 2014 | 0 Comments

Nowadays it's very common that medical malpractice cases will go to mediation. This is a way for both sides to get together to try to work out a monetary settlement of the case.

In a mediation, the two sides have pre-selected another lawyer or a Judge to review the case beforehand and then attempt to get both sides to agree to a number.

You can expect a multi-hour process where there is quite a bit of back and forth by the mediator and the two sides.

You can expect the mediator to ask you and your lawyer tough questions about the case and to challenge you and your lawyer on the issues.

You can expect to have to make compromises about how much you think your case is worth.

You can expect most mediators to try really hard to get a case resolved.

Remember it is not binding so if you don't agree with the ways it is going you can stop and leave.  It will not be held against you.
