At Melinda J. Helbock, A.P.C., our network of attorneys recognize that every case is unique and comes with its own set of circumstances. No two cases are the same and should not be compared to others. A previous settlement is never a guaranty for an identical outcome in another lawsuit. However it is in every client’s best interest to make sure his lawyer has relevant experience in similar cases.
No identical outcomes
Personal injury victims should ask their lawyers if they have represented clients in similar situations. Learn more on what you need to know regarding our personal injury services.
As simple as they might sound, slip and fall injury cases, for example, can be very different from one another and can lead to considerably different outcomes. For example, if an injury occurred due to a slippery floor in a grocery store, a legal claim may be filed based on premise liability law. But, if the injury occurred because of defective stairs, a product liability lawsuit might be filed against the manufacturer of the stairs or the company that installed them.
Even if two clients were injured due to a slip and fall accident, in the same amusement park, the outcome of their lawsuits can be different. Although the owner of the park or the company responsible for its maintenance is responsible for keeping the property reasonably safe, collecting damages from such a case might not always be possible.
A property owner cannot be expected to immediately clean up every slippery substance, nor can he be held responsible for someone slipping on something that an ordinary person should see and avoid. Therefore presenting past settlements as a guaranty for similar outcome can be misleading.
