Licensed Mediation can be the optimal way of resolving worker’s compensation cases that have been open for more than two years, present complex legal, factual or medical issues, require extensive trial time, simply seem “impossible” and can’t seem to move to closure.

Mediation is a powerful settlement tool commonly used in the civil arena, but it’s now gaining high acceptance in worker’s compensation claims, Atlanta, GA because all parties can understand and appreciate its benefits better.

At Bobe & Snell, LLC, we believe that mediation works perfectly in the resolution of worker’s compensation claims. That is why we often ask our clients whether they would be willing to devote a day to a case if they knew that they had an over 80% chance of settling it. That’s what happens in most mediated cases. Therefore, you can resolve your case through mediation if your answer is “yes.”

What Is Mediation?

Mediation is a negotiating session that takes place between litigants and their representatives and conducted with the help of a neutral facilitator, usually a licensed mediator, to achieve a resolution of a dispute.

No one can force you to attend or participate in licensed mediation. It is voluntary, and all negotiations are confidential. While litigation involves turning the decision-making process over to a judge, mediation gives parties a perfect opportunity to participate in the resolution of their case.

The mediation session will give you adequate time to understand positions and interests, narrow down issues, and come up with options for resolution. A licensed mediator, Atlanta, GA will help parties to craft the resolution. Besides, he or she will develop the psychological framework in readiness to move the case to closure. The mediator often achieves this by simply listening to provide parties with a day-in-court experience, and that will create a suitable environment to tackle the substantive aspects of the dispute or claim.

Mediation is different from arbitration mainly because the mediator doesn’t decide the case as an arbitrator would do. The mediator should not become an advocate to maintain the effectiveness during mediation. A skilled, licensed mediator, Atlanta, GA can only help parties and their representatives with a “reality check”, if necessary.
