This list is of course not a complete list of all settlement and verdicts we have obtained on behalf of our clients. In addition, sometimes the settlements or verdicts we obtain are lower than we had anticipated they would be. Sometimes they are higher than we would have expected. This could be for a variety of factors. There are various unknown factors that will undoubtedly affect a personal injury case at trial and throughout the settlement negotiations.Those unknowns could work in our client’s favor, or could work to our client’s disadvantage.For instance, our witnesses may be more credible than the defendant’s witnesses, or vice versa. Remember that each case is different. The results in your case will depend on the individual facts of your particular case.

The foreman was a smoker, and in violation of the lease, smoked in the condo unit, resulting in smoke damage that had permeated the walls and carpeting.
