Personal Injury Mediator in Westlake Village, CA

Mediation & Arbitration for Injury Cases in Thousand Oaks & Beyond

When another person’s negligence or wrongdoing causes you harm, they must be held accountable. However, litigating a personal injury claim can be very expensive and may not resolve for years. A defendant with deep pockets can prolong litigation, making it difficult for an injured party to receive the money they need when they need it most. At NS Mediation Group, we offer mediation services for personal injury matters in the Thousand Oaks area and throughout California. Attorney David Schlueter is an experienced personal injury mediator who practiced for nearly four decades as a full-time litigator.  If you are involved in a personal injury claim but would like to settle the matter out of court with the help of a neutral third party, contact our office at (818) 730-3127.

What Is Personal Injury?

A person who has been injured or lost a loved one as a result of another person’s actions or failure to act can pursue a personal injury claim against the responsible party. A personal injury claim is designed to compensate an injured party for their losses. Cases that may result in a personal injury claim:
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Product liability (dangerous or defective goods)
  • Premises liability (injuries sustained on another person’s property, i.e., slip and fall accidents, inadequate security)
  • Medical malpractice
  • Workplace accidents
  • Wrongful death
Litigating a personal injury case can take months or even years. Formal litigation costs a great deal of money for everyone involved and does not guarantee that there will be a favorable outcome. When a personal injury matter is litigated or even arbitrated, a third party makes the final decision about the case.

What Is Personal Injury Mediation?

Personal injury mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution. It allows both parties to reach a mutually acceptable settlement on the case with the help of a professional mediator. The mediator provides guidance to both parties and facilitates communication on how to resolve the matter. Mediation eliminates many of the extraordinary costs of litigation. If a personal injury matter goes to trial, both sides will likely have to pay discovery costs, expert witness fees, administrative costs, and other miscellaneous expenses. Mediation is confidential and usually voluntary. Parties are guided to find both legal and practical solutions to the issue at hand. 

What Are the Benefits of Personal Injury Mediation?

Mediation helps to alleviate the financial burden of formally litigating a personal injury claim and works to achieve a result that is agreeable to both parties. Benefits of using a personal injury mediator:
  • Saves time and money (Mediation can resolve a matter in a fraction of the amount of time and money it takes to litigate a case)
  • Reduces conflict and hostility between the parties
  • Encourages communication
  • Gives parties a say in the outcome of the case
  • Narrows the focus of the case to the critical issues
At NS Mediation Group, our goal is to ensure that the parties reach a mutual resolution with the best result for everyone involved. As professional mediators, we are impartial and neutral third parties experienced in personal injury litigation, mediation, and arbitration.
