In this video, our experienced Clearwater injury attorney discusses everything you need to know about medical malpractice mediation.
What do I need to prepare for mediation?
Mediation is the opportunity for each side to go to the table, in a confidential setting, and discuss the merits of their case. One thing that I tell all of my clients in preparing for mediation is that we want to go to the table in good faith, width=but not expect a settlement. Mediation used to be a very opportune moment to explore and accomplish settlement. Now, it seems that the insurance companies who are involved in setting up the defense are less inclined to mediate the case. They prefer the case proceed to trial, and it’s often not until the week before the trial that they even take a fair look at the case.
