What Happens During a Mediation? Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney Answers
So, you've been scheduled for mediation. Now is the time we've been waiting for.
Mediation is an opportunity for us to try to settle your case. During this process, we will use the demand that we've already submitted and negotiate with the insurance company. I want to give you some expectations as we go into this process.
First, the insurance company is not likely to pay the entire amount. If they were, they would have done so already. Secondly, it's very likely that the mediation will start with a very low offer, but don't be alarmed. This is all part of the negotiations process. The most important part of mediation is not where they start, but rather where they end.
One of our team members will be contacting you shortly to discuss this process, and what you can expect in your mediation. Just know that we are fighting for maximum value in your case.
If your case cannot settle at mediation, it's likely we will have to go to court. We are almost at the end of the road and we look forward to finding a resolution in your case shortly. Once again, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
