William L. Smith II of Chappell, Smith & Arden has represented thousands of injured employees over the years. As a certified mediator, his 30 years of workers' compensation experience makes the mediation and claims process easier and more expeditious.
Mediation can expeditiously resolve Workers' Compensation cases outside of the courtroom, derailing long drawn-out hearings and appeals.
The process is usually ordered by the court or mandated by law and it requires the injured worker, the employer/carrier, attorneys for both the worker and the employer/carrier and an impartial mediator to work in harmony toward a fair and just solution for both parties. It relies on the open exchange of ideas and information tempered by a mediator who is experienced in Workers' Comp law as there is no judge or jury involved.
