Why We Can’t Publish Some of Our Biggest, Most Powerful Wins
In any type of personal injury litigation or legal proceedings there are certain uncertainties and certain routine costs that repeat players in litigation, like big insurance companies, can estimate. However, it can be difficult for insurers to gauge exactly how a jury will react to a particular situation. In light of the costs to litigate and the potential for a significant jury award, it is often favorable for parties to explore settlement options.
In fact, in many cases, the company or party who caused the injury will settle for a very large sum instead of taking the risk of going to court. That’s a good deal for our client, who gets a large, guaranteed award without the trauma of a trial. But as part of the settlement, the company may also demand that we keep the agreement confidential. That protects them from pile-on lawsuits. But it means we can’t publish details of our best cases here. However, we can provide certain anonymous details to provide some background into the types of cases that we have successfully handled.
However, please do take note that past success in similar legal matters does not suggest or imply that a similar result will be achieved in your matter. All legal matters in Pennsylvania are highly dependent on how Pennsylvania law applies to the facts and circumstances of your accident, slip, and fall, or other personal injury situation. Our legal team can assess your matter and determine if there is a significant likelihood for a favorable settlement or jury verdict.
