If you have been involved in some type of serious Connecticut accident, where you have suffered injuries through the fault of another, whether it involves a car, motorcycle, truck, taxi cab, bicycle, pedestrian, crosswalk, hit-and-run, drunk driver, slip and fall, trip and fall, premises liability case, dog bite case, or other type of accident one of the ways that you can resolve your case prior to going to trial is through mediation. An experienced CT personal injury lawyer and accident attorney can explain this process to you which can help to resolve your case much earlier in the process through the use of an independent third party.
Mediation is the process of inviting an experienced, mutually agreed upon, impartial third-party, referred to as the mediator, who has no decision-making authority but who will attempt to assist the injured party and the insurance company involuntarily negotiating an acceptable resolution of the case. This can be a powerful settlement device if properly used at the appropriate time. An experienced CT accident attorney and injury lawyer will be able to explain this process to you, whether or not it might be appropriate for your case, what you need to do to assist in this process, and a range of values that you might expect to get from a mediator.
A mediator will generally allow each side to present his or her own case. The client may be called upon to comment about certain issues, especially about what problems, limitations, pain, and suffering that the injured party is experiencing as a result of the subject CT accident. The insurance company's representative will want to downplay the injuries that are being claimed by the injured party, will want to show that there are pre-existing injuries or accidents that have been suffered, will want to show how the injured party is partially or completely at fault for the accident and multiple other reasons why the mediator should suggest a greatly reduced amount from what the injured party's CT accident attorney is seeking.
One of the greatest advantages of mediation is that it allows a disinterested third party to get involved in attempting to resolve the injured party's case and if the injured party is not happy with the numbers that are being suggested then the injured party does not have to settle their case at that particular point in time. It could also provide the Connecticut accident and injury attorney with areas that they need to build upon in order to get the number which they claimed they are entitled to receive. This is a very valuable tool that should be investigated by an injured party with their CT injury lawyer and accident attorney.
