Whether people are injured in car accidents, construction accidents, or other serious accidents, they need to be compensated. Negligent parties must be held accountable for their actions. For many injured people, a lawsuit is the only way their need for justice can be satisfied.
In personal injury lawsuits, most cases (approximately 95 percent or more) will actually settle prior to trial. Of the cases which proceed to trial, only about two percent of the cases will actually proceed all the way to a jury verdict. Methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), such as mediation or arbitration, are frequently used to make pre-trial resolution possible.
Arthur F. Licata, P.C., represents injured clients and their families in complex personal injury litigation in Massachusetts, New York, and throughout New England. He is recognized for his dedication to clients and to finding creative solutions which serve the interests of his clients.
Mediation is a legal process by which a neutral third party (the mediator) facilitates meetings in which the parties come together. The mediator's goal is to establish a mutually agreed upon settlement. Mediation does not impose a decision on the parties.
In effective mediation sessions, solutions are not dictated. The mediator does not represent either party, he helps explains each party's point of view. He brings the parties together so that they can understand the other side's position. He tries to elicit suggestions for resolving the case creatively and in a manner that is acceptable to both sides.
