What To Expect At A Workers’ Compensation Mediation

Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution method that involves a third-party mediator to help facilitate discussions between the parties and their lawyers. The mediator does not impose a judgment or a solution, instead leaving it up to the parties to make all settlement decisions. In a workers’ compensation case, multiple parties attend the mediation, including the injured party, the insurance adjuster representing the employer and the attorneys for both parties.

Mediation allows you to address all the major aspects of a workers’ compensation case, including wage loss benefits, payment for medical expenses and future lost wages. There are many benefits to mediation, including saving valuable time and money. Without the hassle of preparing for a trial, you can settle your claim much faster and cheaper.
