Mediation and the Psychologically Injured Plaintiff

  • David Alcorn


This work deals with the advantages and disadvantages of mediation of personal injury claims involving or comprised of psychological injuries. Because of this, it is principally, but not exclusively, concerned with workplace injuries and motor vehicle accidents. These are very commonly the subject of mediation initiatives, such as a recent Queensland Settlement Week1 where they comprised 36% and 33% of cases respectively. Despite this, there is a relative dearth of empirical and anecdotal data concerning these claimants in Australian practitioner and academic journals.
