What if I don't think the mediator is being fair?

Mediation is designed to help parties reach a compromised solution to their issues. You do not need to accept the terms of any agreement if you and your attorney don't consider them fair. Additionally, any party in the mediation can request that the mediator be disqualified. The request must be submitted to the judge, include specific reasons for disqualification, and the name of a substitute mediator. An experienced workers' compensation attorney from the Coye Law Firm knows the behavior and judgement expected of a mediator and can help you determine if they are truly impartial.
