Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution process used in personal injury cases in which a neutral person, the mediator, assists the parties in reaching a mutually acceptable solution thereby avoiding a costly trial. The mediator does not have the authority to make a binding decision, unlike arbitration, where the arbitrator renders a decision that is final and binding. However, written settlement agreements between the parties are enforceable. For additional information on mediation visit the Federal Trade Commission, Facts for Consumers web site.
According to the American Arbitration Association, statistics show that 85% of commercial matters and 95% of personal injury matters end in written settlement agreements.
