​​Can I Settle My Georgia Or Tennessee Personal Injury Claim Without Going To Court?

Most of the time, you can settle your personal injury claim without the stress of going to court.

One of the most effective ways of settling your case without going to trial is through the process of mediation.  In fact, most of the personal injury cases that don’t settle before trial, settle through mediation after your attorney files suit in court.  This is especially true since Covid-19 has slowed Courts to a crawl.

So, what is mediation?

In mediation, both you and the party who injured you (or their insurance company’s representative) and everyone’s attorney gather with a trained, neutral third party or mediator.  The mediator hears both sides of the case and tries to help both sides reach a settlement acceptable to both sides.

What makes a successful mediation?

Only the parties involved in a case can make a successful mediation possible.  To do this, both sides must be open and honest about both the good and bad parts of their case with the mediator.  Each party can confide in the mediator and if told not to share the information with the other side, the mediator won’t share the information.  Always—-information revealed in the mediation stays in the mediation.

Is a mediation cheaper than a trial?

Yes.  Many times it is much cheaper.  Preparation for a trial can run as high as $10,000 to $15,000 dollars.  That’s because expert and physician testimony can be so expensive.  But, since mediations often happen before experts and medical doctors are paid to testify, mediations are so much cheaper and you get to keep more of your settlement money.  This is one of the biggest benefits of a mediation.

Take the first step toward a fair settlement by consulting an experienced personal injury attorney who knows how to handle a mediation and get your case settled fast.  Contact us online, start a chat, or call our Chattanooga office at 423-892-5533 to schedule a free claim strategy session.  We take cases on a contingency fee basis, so you pay no attorney fees until we win your case.
