Excellent and professional and a good solution to our issues!

Personal Injury

Personal injury disputes can be protracted and expensive and are affected by heightened emotion. They can also become complicated when there is a lack of an agreement about liability and the level of damages.

While the longer, expensive and more stressful litigation process focuses on a win/lose scenario, Global Mediation provides an opportunity to discuss sensitive issues in a confidential and safe environment including the claimants’ injuries, effects and suffering as well as the impact on the defendant. Mediation can speed up the process of emotional recovery and will establish a cost-effective, constructive solution that focuses on a mutually beneficial outcome for both parties.

Settlements are expedited since all the key decision-makers are together in one place at the same time and mediation avoids the need for long, drawn-out legal correspondence.
