There’s a simple truth we must accept in almost any personal injury case: the defendant—our opponent–has the upper hand. And in case upon case, the defendant is either a major international corporation or a multi-billion dollar insurance company. They have assets and resources at hand that few plaintiffs could ever hope to match. They can spend the maximum amount they have to spend to ensure a favorable result. With overwhelming resources at hand, they face no pressing need to settle the case.
Efficiency has no value because they expect their resources to overpower those of an ordinary citizen. That’s why some firms have made an important decision: they must do everything they possibly can to level the playing field.
