Ask A Disability Lawyer

What is mediation?

Legal Definitions - Question 34
Mediation is a more formal structured process of negotiation that tries to settle your claim through the active participation of a third party mediator. The mediator works to find points of agreement and help both parties come to a mutually agreeable settlement. The mediator helps to outline strengths and weaknesses in each party’s case and helps to keep the parties talking. However, mediation does not always result in a settlement.
