Is mediation a required step in a personal injury case?

Mediation of personal injury cases is not mandatory, but more and more cases are being mediated. It is one of the best tools available if clients and insurance companies reach an impasse on a settlement. Mediation is often more efficient, more cost-conscious, and more effective for resolving personal injury disputes because it provides everyone involved with control over the outcome.

There are some instances in which the court orders parties involved in a dispute to attempt mediation, but even in those cases parties are not required to settle their dispute through mediation – they simply need to attempt to do so.
