Verdicts and Settlements
Cases in point:
The heart of the matter.
Our ever-evolving list of verdicts and settlements continues to grow. What matters most is that every case we handle is a story about people, often a heartbreaking one. About those whose lives have been negatively impacted – occasionally beyond all comprehension – due to someone else’s unlawful choices or negligence. It is an all too-real story about the decisions and events leading up to a catastrophic occurrence or series of occurrences, and how those events can destroy people’s hope of leading a normal, healthy life. We never forget that each case represents an adult, infant or family who means the world to loved ones, and whose lives have been deeply impacted.
A measure of success.
What monetary recovery enables is both compensation and a way to evaluate and quantify our work on your behalf. Once we have ascertained that you have a claim, we take on the legal gauntlet to seek resolution either by settling out of court or by jury.
Evaluate law ﬁrms’ monetary claims with caution.
We have long been aware of attorneys who, rather than use the present value of a case’s verdict and settlement, show a total figure including all future payments over time that is inﬂated because the monies are put into an annuity. That is not an accurate amount for the current ﬁnancial recovery. All the numbers we report for a settlement are in present value. Don’t be misled by any ﬁrm’s artiﬁcially inﬂated amounts for monetary recovery.
