Calling on all Personal Injury / Clinical Negligence Members

Whilst the planned MoJ Reforms within the claims sector remain a popular topic for after dinner discussions and are likely to be for the foreseeable future, the use of mediation in personal injury/clinical negligence matters is a regular discussion point on forums and in various trade journal articles, indicating a slight shift towards acceptance by both sides that it is a viable option to be considered within litigation.

 

Historically there has been a general feel that mediation was not appropriate in personal injury cases, case handlers being of the view that the standard round table type discussions between either side are sufficient.  However, it is our Panel Mediators’ experience that these cases can be successfully mediated where liability is hotly contested and a compromise based on the mixed odds of success/failure is achieved. 

 

I should be extremely interested to hear from Members who are personal injury/clinical negligence lawyers representing either side for your viewpoints on mediation in personal injury or clinical negligence cases and to establish whether you too have noticed claims facing Insurers encouraging more cases to be referred for Mediation.

 

Please contact me at kendallliz@yahoo.co.uk or call 07980 316040.  I am trying to gain a general overview and all discussions will be treated with the strictest of confidence e.g. your personal views will not be shared with anyone.
