Statistics show that 97% of personal injury cases settle before going to trial. One of the most effective ways to settle a claim is during mediation, which can result in a fair settlement of your case without needing to go to trial.
Settling during mediation can be a win-win solution for both you and the insurer, as it allows you to resolve the dispute without an expensive and lengthy trial, where a judge and jury would have the power to make decisions about your case instead of you.
If you are able to effectively tell the insurance adjuster how your life has been impacted by your injury or illness and if your lawyer has provided the insurer with all relevant evidence ahead of time, you may be able to receive a settlement on the higher end of what the adjuster believes your case could be worth.
A personal injury claim mediation has five participants:
- You (the Claimant)
- Your Injury Lawyer
- Insurance Adjuster
- Insurance Lawyer

Ultimately, (and with the guidance of your injury lawyer) you decide whether to accept, reject, or provide a counteroffer to the settlement offered to you during the mediation.
