In almost all wrongful death actions, as in many injury cases, the plaintiff will be forced to consider settlement at mediation or go to trial.
Mediation is a process to reach a settlement agreement.
Ironically, the good and the bad of mediation are one and the same thing. This is because a settlement is compromise – the safest approach for both sides.
Unfortunately, for a plaintiff to get true justice, often they must be willing to go to trial.
