 Personal Injury Mediation

Personal injury claims can often be difficult by nature, combining issues such as liability, contributory fault, causation and quantum with high emotions and sensitive personal issues.

Even if liability is admitted, disputes can often remain concerning the extent of the injuries, any pre-existing conditions, the level of compensation for pain, suffering and loss of amenity, financial losses, future care and necessary alterations to the home.

The longer, more expensive and more stressful litigation process focuses on a win/lose outcome.  In contrast, personal injury mediation gives claimants and defendants a unique opportunity to tackle the problem together, sometimes meeting for the first time since the accident.  Sensitive issues can be discussed in a confidential environment, unlike in a public courtroom.  Personal injury mediation can help speed-up the process of emotional recovery, facilitate quicker, more cost effective and more creative solutions, than court imposed decisions.

Personal injury mediation can be suitable for:

  • Private clients
  • Insurance and reinsurance companies
  • Employers
  • Highway authorities
  • Occupiers
  • Healthcare bodies
