What Is a Mediation?

A mediation is a form of “alternate dispute resolution” that has gained approval and encouragement from the Missouri Supreme Court and the Kansas Supreme Court. It offers an effective way for parties involved in litigation to settle their differences outside of the courtroom.

During mediation, an impartial third party will listen to the arguments presented by both sides and attempt to steer the parties toward a settlement of their dispute. Participation in the mediation is voluntary, and any resolution or termination of the case is based solely on the parties’ agreement. Unlike a judge, the mediator does not issue binding decisions to be followed. Instead, their role is to facilitate productive communication and negotiation between the parties involved.

To provide further insights into mediation, our attorney and founding shareholder, Tim Monsees, has prepared a video explaining what a mediation is and breaks down the guidelines for potential plaintiffs. If you are interested in learning more about preparing for mediation, we also offer a comprehensive booklet on preparing for a personal injury case. Feel free to contact us to receive the booklet and gain a deeper understanding of the mediation process and how it can apply to your specific situation.
