Resolving a medical malpractice lawsuit through mediation

Some residents of Cook County, Illinois, have been involved with serious medical negligence cases as a result of going to a doctor to get a checkup or during a major medical emergency. In some cases, the patients not only suffer from serious injuries that do not heal from the initial medical problem, but the problem may even cause the person's death due to the complications that come from medical negligence.

Some patients who have suffered from medical malpractice feel that exorbitant medical expenses have left them with such financial difficulties that they can no longer afford to go to court against a wealthy doctor or hospital.

In such a case, mediation may be an option in order to help the family as well as the medical practitioner or the hospital to come to an amicable settlement of the dispute. Even hospitals, in some cases, prefer mediation in order to have the dispute resolved quickly and relatively painlessly.

Mediation can be a voluntary and informal dispute resolution method in which a neutral third party will act as the mediator. The mediator can investigate the various aspects of the medical malpractice case and look at the evidence that the attorney of each side has presented.

In some cases, patients might not even want the details of their case to become known to the public. The alternate dispute resolution can help the patient and the medical practitioner to settle their disputes in a private and confidential manner, which will help the person to achieve peace of mind.
