Mediations are hard work. But nothing like going to trial. Or the commitment of time, energy and expense that goes into preparing for trial.

A signficant amount of effort is required to successfully mediate a case. But the effort expended at mediation pales in comparison to the work necessary to take a case to trial.

If your case can’t be settled then you have to be prepared to do the following: work with your attorney to prepare for your deposition and IME; review all pleadings (including motions, responses, replies, etc.) and help your attorney prepare declarations; sit for your deposition, attend at least one IME, meet with a vocational counselor and probably attend a physical capacities examination; and attend trial (which can last up to several weeks).
