Q
How can mediation be used to settle an Atlanta car accident case?

A

Mediation is a legal process where an Atlanta accident injury victim and his insurance company agree to have a non-biased mediator come in and help them try to agree on a fair settlement. The mediator is often a retired judge or an experienced attorney. He will meet with all parties involved, both together and separately, and help them come to a mutual agreement. However, neither party is under any obligation to come to an agreement and may walk out of mediation at any time.

 

There are good reasons to consider mediation. Going to court takes time and money. If you need money right away, mediation can result in a faster settlement. However, if the insurance company isn't willing to agree to a fair settlement, going to court may be the better choice. An Atlanta auto accident attorney can review your Georgia accident injury claim and help you decide on the best option for you.
