If your lawsuit is issued at the Superior Court of Justice in Windsor, Ontario, your lawsuit will include a step know as Mandatory Mediation.

The Windsor Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer from Paciocco& Mellow who handles your claim will meet with you in advance of the day of the mediation to prepare you for the mediation process. Your lawyer will prepare a Statement of Issues which will be submitted to the mediator in advance of the mediation. The lawyer for the defendant will do the same. The Statement of Issues contains each side’s evidence and position on the key issues in dispute. The mediator review each party’s Statement of Issues before the mediation so that he or she is familiar with the issue in the case. The mediator is not a judge and will not decide whether you win your case or how much you get. The mediator is there to help the parties come to a mutually agreeable settlement.

Mandatory mediation will normally take place at office of the plaintiff’s lawyer. The mediation usually begins with all the parties, their lawyers and the mediator meeting in one room. Each lawyer will give a presentation concerning their client’s case. The mediator may ask questions to help clarify the issues in dispute. After the initial presentations are complete, each side goes into a separate room and the mediator carries offers back and forth. The mediator may also provide his or her thoughts to each of the parties. However, the mediator does not tell the other side anything that is discussed in the private rooms without the permission of that party.

Mediation is also conducted on what is known as a Without Prejudice basis. This means that if the mediation fails, neither party can bring up anything that happened at the mediation later in the lawsuit. Offers made during the mediation process, which are not extended, are off the table once they are rejected. If mediation fails, the parties continue on to court as if the mediation never happened.

It is very common for actions to resolve at mandatory mediation or shortly thereafter. As such, mandatory mediation is one of the most important steps in any lawsuit. The experienced injury lawyers at Paciocco& Mellow will make sure that full advantage is taken of the mediation process.

Often the most contentious issue in a personal injury lawsuit is the severity of the injury. The records of your family doctor, any hospital you have received treatment at, any specialist you have seen and other types of healthcare providers such as physiotherapists, massage therapists and chiropractors which you have seen following the accident will be used to demonstrate the severity of your injury. The records and opinions of these “treating” healthcare providers often carry great weight with the judge and jury at trial. However, it is sometimes necessary to obtain the opinion of an expert with special experience dealing with your particular injury and preparing reports for use in court.

The Windsor Injury Lawyers at Paciocco& Mellow have access to all the types of experts that may be required to support your claim.

We represent only injured people and never act for insurance companies. As such, you can be sure that we always have your interests as an injured person at heart and that we will fight tirelessly to make sure that you get all the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies are interested in paying as little money as possible to injured persons. Some lawyers represent both insurance companies and injured persons which causes what we believe is an inherent conflict of interest, even if they do not do work for the same insurance company you are suing. The conflict is that how can a lawyer credibly argue that a case is worth one amount when acting for an insurer and another amount when acting for an injured person. You have to ask yourself how a judge who hears many matters from such a lawyer would respond. We suggest that such a lawyer is likely less credible before a judge when he or she has said in one case, when acting for an insurance company, that a particular injury is worth one amount and when acting for an injured person that a similar injury is worth much more.

Car accidents often result in injuries to the neck and back that can require extensive physiotherapy, massage therapy and/or chiropractic treatment.

Following any car accident, it is important to remain calm and behave in a reasonable manner. You may rightly be very upset at the other driver following the accident, but it will not help your case to yell at them or use profanity.

You should immediately contact the local police department to report the accident and have a Motor Vehicle Accident Report completed. You should also take down the information of the other driver(s) involved in the accident, including their name, address, telephone number, driver’s license number, license plate number, the make and model of their vehicle, the name of their insurance company and their policy number. If they refuse to provide you with this information, do not a press the matter. Allow the police to deal with them. You should, however, take down their license plate number, a description of the driver and the vehicle, in case the other driver flees the scene before the police arrive.

If you believe that you have been injured in the accident, you should request that an ambulance attend at the scene.

If you choose not to have an ambulance attend at the scene, you should attend at the office of your family doctor, a walk-in clinic or the emergency room of your local hospital as soon as possible after the investigating police officer releases you from the accident scene.

After you have received medical treatment, you should contact your own auto insurance company to report the claim and complete an application for accident benefits.
