Personal Injury/Other Torts Mediating serious personal injury and wrongful death cases is a demanding area of practice because of the broad case types and varied fact patterns. For plaintiffs, this area of mediation is often an emotional experience, while defense attorneys and their insurance company counterparts must balance coverage limits, predetermined valuation strategies and the varied issues that make each case unique and complex. When dealing with serious personal injury and wrongful death cases, the mediator must be adept at guiding multiple parties, lawyers and insurance carriers at the same time. A good mediator must have extensive litigation experience, an understanding of the valuations of cases, familiarity with the culture of insurance companies and knowledge of applicable insurance laws. As Circuit Judge’s, Jay Daugherty and Robert Schieber tried, conducted settlement negotiations and mediated cases in literally thousands of tort cases from medical malpractice and wrongful death to low impact automobile accident cases. John Phillips has been litigating and mediating for decades handling personal injury and tort cases in both an attorney role and a mediator role. All of them have extensive experience with medical/legal issues, damage assessments, coverage issues, and understand the socio/legal dynamics at play in negotiations between injured litigants, insurance professionals and their respective attorneys. Specific examples of the many serious personal injury and wrongful death trials and mediations conducted by our mediators include scores of vehicular collisions (common carrier, trucks and rail); wrongful death cases involving car, truck and farm implements; premises liability of every kind; product liability; machinery accidents; nursing home injuries; governmental tort claims; consumer fraud; MMPA claims; FELA cases; and intentional torts (assault and battery, defamation). The depth and breadth of our mediator’s litigation experience in this area gives each of them knowledge and skill to handle even the most complex personal injury and tort cases.
