Confidential Solutions in Medical & Professional Negligence

Mediating Your Medical and Professional Negligence Claims

Medical and other Professional Negligence Claims Mediation

Claims of negligence against professionals of any discipline are on the increase. Such claims are not only stressful and difficult for the plaintiff to pursue, but also for the defendant professional to defend. While a defendant professional will usually be insured against any financial consequences of any liability found against him/her, nevertheless the defence itself of the proceedings in a court, even where successful, will expose the professional to reputational risk and adverse publicity.

Mediation is a process where the parties can explore all the issues in the case in a safe, private and confidential environment, which can often lead to a fair and realistic settlement, but without the delay, publicity, risks and cost (in financial and emotional terms) of having those same issues aired and determined in open court.

Michael has acted as a mediator in many professional negligence claims and has seen how it can benefit both plaintiff and defendant.
