Personal Injury cases are often ripe for settlement shortly after the complaint has been filed. At this juncture, all medical records, witness statements, police reports, etc…ought to have been obtained by both Plaintiff and Defendants.
Why Should you hire a mediator?
There is far more economic value at the beginning of these cases as opposed to the end when parties have to engage experts and reach the “point of no return” or worse are encountering the law of diminishing returns. Costs can be saved by mediating early and avoiding depositions, IME’s, etc…upfront and investing the money in settling the matter.
