Mediation
Mediation is a client centered process, which focuses on the interests and values of all parties leading to mutually acceptable solutions.

What is Mediation?

A Voluntary, Non-Adversarial Dispute resolution process in which a third party the Mediator, assists clients to reach a mutually satisfactory resolution/agreement.

We are committed to and have a keen interest in the use of mediation as a means to early dispute resolution. This can negate the need for further litigation and, thus, provide the most cost-effective service.

Why Mediation?

  • Effectiveness
  • Speed
  • Voluntary Nature
  • Cost
  • Flexibility
  • Confidentiality
  • Can help restore good working relationships
  • Doesn’t infringe your rights to a legal remedy
  • Legal / Court Developments

What we can do for you

We do not promise a “quick fix”, or “flashy gimmicks”, or promise more than we can deliver but we do promise you, as our logo states “thoughtful clear advice”. We recognise that a medical accident has significant emotional and financial consequences for you and your family, and we will do everything we can to make the process run as smoothly as possible for you. 

We strongly believe that every victim of medical negligence is entitled to just as good, if not better, legal representation than that provided to the State, hospital boards and medical consultants.

Step 1

We believe proper access to justice is a fundamental right and not a privilege.

Step 2

We hope in all cases to obtain an explanation for what happened to you.

Step 3

We strive to hold the doctor or hospital accountable for their actions.

Step 4

Our aim is to secure proper compensation wherever appropriate.

Am I eligible for a medical negligence claim?

The Mediation Process

Under the guidance of the mediator and in accordance with agreed ground rules the parties:

  • Individually outline their case, concerns and needs.
  • Hear the other party’s case.
  • Clear up misunderstandings.
  • Objectively assess strengths & weaknesses
  • Identify the real issues
  • Explore options
  • Find a solution that meets their individual & common needs.

Where Does Mediation Work Well?

Examples:

  • Where a dispute may be prolonged in another process,
  • Where the parties need to work together in the future
  • Where the Parties cannot risk major legal costs
  • Where the parties want a solution without adversity
  • Internal: Between Owners, Members, Managers, Staff et cetera in Organisations
  • External: With Suppliers, Customers, Creditors, Debtors, Agencies et cetera
  • Within Communities, between Communities and other organisations
