Experienced Personal Injury Mediators in Las Vegas, Nevada

Have you been injured by someone else’s negligence? If so, you may have to jump through some hoops in order to get payment for your damages. That is because it can be hard to get an insurance company or other liable party to admit their wrongdoing and pay up. If you and the insurance company cannot come to an agreement, then mediation may be a good next step.

Personal injury mediation is a process used to resolve disputes between parties involved in personal injury claims without going to trial. It involves negotiation facilitated by a neutral third party known as a mediator. Oftentimes people jump to filing a lawsuit, but personal injury mediation can be a quicker and more cost effective option.

Personal injury mediation is sometimes required, but for the most part, it is voluntarily agreed to by both parties. Mediation can be a great tool for resolving claims without the risk, expense, time, and energy required to fight your case in court. However, keep in mind that insurance companies will often use mediation as a tool to discourage injured victims from seeking full compensation.

There is no personal injury case too big or too small that cannot be resolved using mediation.

Opening Statements

The plaintiff and defense will start off the mediation with opening statements. The plaintiff’s attorney proceeds with their opening statement regarding the valuation of their personal injury case. This statement can vary in length from a brief two-minute summary to an extensive presentation spanning several hours. The length depends on the selection of exhibits, records, videos, photographs, or charts the plaintiff’s lawyer wishes to present. This initial statement aids the mediator, insurance adjusters, and attorneys in comprehending the potential perspectives of a jury should the case not reach a settlement.

The defense offers its opening statement as well. It will outline reasons for advocating a lesser compensation. The defense attorney proceeds to articulate reasons behind the lower settlement offers, aiming to portray their case favorably while potentially disparaging the plaintiff’s position. The tone can range from aggressive and confrontational to amiable and empathetic.


Confidentiality is a critical aspect of the mediation process. Here is how confidentiality is maintained in personal injury mediation:

  • Mediation agreement. Before the mediation process begins, all parties involved typically sign a mediation agreement. This agreement outlines the terms of confidentiality and establishes the ground rules for the mediation process.
  • Private sessions. During mediation, private sessions may occur between each party and the mediator. These sessions allow the parties to discuss sensitive issues or explore potential settlement options. These sessions are confidential, meaning that the mediator cannot disclose information shared during these private sessions to the other party without permission.
  • Confidentiality of discussions. Discussions and negotiations that take place during the mediation process are generally considered confidential. This means that anything said or presented during the mediation cannot be used as evidence in court proceedings if the mediation fails to reach a settlement.
  • No recording or reporting. Participants are prohibited from recording or reporting on the mediation sessions. This helps encourage open and honest communication between the parties.
  • Mediator neutrality. Mediators are neutral third parties whose role is to facilitate communication and help parties reach a mutually acceptable resolution. They are bound by ethical guidelines to maintain confidentiality throughout the mediation process.

Benefits of Mediation

Besides increased confidentiality, mediation also offers these benefits:

  • Lower cost. Mediation is often less expensive than going to court or engaging in lengthy legal battles. It can save parties significant time and money by resolving disputes efficiently.
  • Faster resolution. Mediation typically results in faster resolution of disputes compared to litigation, which can drag on for months or even years. Mediation helps parties reach agreements more efficiently and effectively.
  • In mediation, parties have more control over the outcome of the dispute compared to traditional litigation, where decisions are made by a judge or jury. Mediation empowers parties to actively participate in crafting mutually beneficial solutions that meet their needs and interests.
