No two cases are exactly alike – every case has distinctive differences and its own set of unique challenges. The fictional case studies in this section are based on some common patterns and situations in personal injury cases and provide answers about careful settlement planning.
We hope you find these case studies useful and informative, but they are not the same as a personal review and consultation. Good advice includes a review of all the facts of your unique situation. Your settlement case is sensitive to your own particular goals and wishes and may take into account laws, rules, and practices not discussed in the following case studies.
We welcome your questions, suggestions, and comments. However, we cannot give individualized advice on the basis of any e-mail inquiry. As we are not attorneys, it is not our intent to provide legal advice, including tax and trust law. In the event you require such advice, we are happy to provide referrals and introductions to legal experts.
