If you have suffered illness due to toxic exposure, you are not alone. There are many cases where large amounts of people have been affected by harmful products such as asbestos, faulty contact lens solution, weedkiller and more.
In many cases, evidence exists that the corporations involved were warned about these risks, but chose to ignore them. In other words, they were happy to continue with products, that cost people their health.
One of the advantages of these cases, which have affected many people, is that someone else may have done the legal groundwork for you. Unless you are the first person to bring a case, the evidence has been presented before in the courts to show that these companies were negligent. Judges know it, the public knows it and the offending companies know it.
So, in many cases, it is in no one’s interest to again relive the whole thing in court, which is where mediation can come in. If you want to seek compensation for toxic exposure in Florida, against a company that has already had to pay people out for the same issue, they may be happy to go to mediation. It avoids their name being dragged into the spotlight again and could save them time and money.
For you, as someone with a claim, it avoids the need to spend a lot of money, which you may not have, trying to fight a corporation who has far more money than you. It is a quicker and more cost-effective solution for both parties.
