Mediate.com Podcast Episode 8:  Impact of Culture and Psychology When Mediating Accident Cases with Bruce Ally

In this episode, Bruce Ally–mediator and a Principal at A Place for Mediation Inc.– discusses how mediators can help parties ‘get the full picture’ when mediating accident cases.  Here are a few highlights from the episode:

  • Ambulance usage may not be a reliable indicator of the severity of injury.  
  • Cultural conditioning can impact whether an injured person calls for an ambulance.
  • When an injured person’s ‘fight or flight’ response kicks in, adrenaline is produced which masks pain and may cause the injured person to undervalue the injury.
  • Trauma impacts memory.
