If you are representing a client and going through the process of filing a personal injury claim for your client, choosing personal injury mediation in Houston can provide you and your client with a number of key benefits. Some of the most important include:
It is not uncommon in personal injury cases for personal injury defense lawyers to request many years’ worth of medical records of your client in order to find a way to challenge your client’s personal injury claim. This may result in a person’s private medical information being shared and discussed with many other parties, including insurance adjusters, insurance company employees, and possibly others. The defendant may also face the disclosure of damaging information that they do not want the public to know. Mediation is a confidential process where the parties cannot repeat whatever was discussed during the mediation session if the case is not resolved in mediation.
Cost and Time Savings
Both parties stand to save significant time and money by resolving their dispute through mediation. Litigation is expensive and can cost an exorbitant amount of money to pay attorney’s fees, court costs, expert witness fees and other expenses. Litigation can also drag out for a long time. Mediation can be scheduled quickly, based on the schedules of the parties, their attorneys, and the mediator. Scheduling mediation early in the litigation process can potentially help avoid many expenses associated with litigation.
Houston Texas mediators can also help provide a more predictable outcome. If the parties reach an agreement during the mediation, they both know the end result of the case. They will not be surprised by a judge or jury’s decision at trial. Furthermore, the parties reach an agreement based on their own terms, not those imposed by a third party.
