When considering how to proceed in a high-value insurance matter and whether to hire a lawyer, many people are intimidated by the prospect of a drawn-out battle that could go all the way to trial with uncertain results. In reality, the vast majority of claim disputes are resolved out of court through negotiation, mediation or arbitration.
In insurance claim mediation, a neutral third party acts as a mediator focused on bringing parties involved in the dispute together and settling differences. Unlike arbitration — which may also be an option in your case — mediation does not give decision-making authority over to this third party. Both parties must agree to a settlement.
