How much input does a plaintiff have at mediation?
The Plaintiff plays an integral role in instructing lawyers at
mediation. While guidance and direction must be provided by the lawyer
representing the plaintiff at mediation, ultimately, the decision to
submit, accept and/or reject any settlement proposals that are made at
mediation are up to the Plaintiff. It is important to trust your
lawyer at mediation as they should have a lot of experience in dealing
with matters at mediation, but you should ensure that you ask questions
if you don't understand what is going on during the process as once
settlement is reached, it is important to understand that the case is
usually concluded at that time.
