NY Car Accidents & Personal Injury Trial Lawyer

An injured victim who is contemplating bringing a lawsuit for their car accident in New York may think that the only way to get compensated is by going all the way to trial. Many times that is the only way to get full and fair compensation.

However, did you also know that there is a procedure known as mediation that may help you avoid the need to proceed forward to trial?

Mediation is a private negotiation process that is used to try and get both sides to come to the negotiating table at some point prior to trial.

One or both sides may recognize the inherent uncertainties about taking the case to trial and the possible outcomes that can occur.

In some instances, both sides will recognize the benefits of proceeding to a private negotiation before trial in an attempt to try and settle your case before trial.

Not every mediation is successful.

However, it can often provide an ideal opportunity for each side to present their strong points, recognize their weaknesses and understand that a negotiated settlement option may be an ideal opportunity to resolve your case prior to trial.
