Many malpractice cases never make it to the court room. Some may not even make it to public record due to mediation. Meditation is the process where the two parties can find a compromise for compensation due to malpractice. It is cheaper, less stressful and spares the healthcare provider less unwanted publicity.
The article, “Legal Malpractice Ideally Handled in Pre-Suit Mediation” from Miles Mediation and Arbitration looks at the process of mediation. The article states,
“Resolving a matter pre-suit often means that it can be disposed of in weeks or months instead of years.

The truncated time period also translates to cost savings in terms of legal fees. Relative to litigation, the cost of a pre-suit mediation is nominal.”
