What is a Mediation?

Published on Jun 23, 2017 at 6:20 pm in Uncategorized.

What is a mediation? In our practice, we are often asked by the lawyers on the other side to either mediate or arbitrate our cases. These are often confusing concepts for our clients.

Last week in Columbus, Ohio, managing partner, Rob Sachs, Jr., spoke about how to communicate more effectively in mediations during a continuing legal education program entitled “Connectionology”. Also speaking with Attorney Sachs were outstanding lawyers and trial support experts from around the country including: John Romano (West Palm Beach, FL); Harvey Moore, Ph.D. (Tampa, FL); Steve Gursten (Detroit, MI); Dan Volkema (Columbus, OH) and others.

Unlike an arbitration where a decision is rendered at the end of the process, a mediation involves a neutral third party attempting to help the parties reach a meeting of the minds on the settlement value. If an agreement is reached, it is enforceable as a contract between the parties and either side could sue to enforce the contract if anyone ever had a post-mediation change of heart.

Proving Fault in Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical malpractice cases often involve serious and life-altering injuries, and can be very complex and expensive to try. Because the burden of proof rests entirely on the plaintiff, it is very important that medical malpractice cases be handled by a law firm with substantial experience and a history of positive outcomes. At Shrager & Sachs, we have handled countless malpractice cases and know what it takes to help our clients obtain the money they deserve after a doctor or health care provider’s mistake left them injured.
