Does Mediation Really Work?
Countless researches have proven that mediation works. Mediation resolves most tort type problems 85% of the time. It resolves TRO and similar issues about 98% of the time.
In a 1992 substantial statistical base study, mediation settled issues at the following percentages:
Workers Compensation: 87%
Contract Disputes: 87%
Debt/Sworn Accounts: 87%
Motor Vehicle Claims: 85%
Other Personal Injury Claims: 77%
Overall settlement rate: 83%
Couples who have mediated their divorce are more likely to be satisfied with the process and the results, more likely to take less time and spend less money, and less likely to go back to court at a later stage in order to renegotiate or fight over one aspect or another, than couples who went through an adversarial divorce.
